I'll share some salads if you share some bodybuilding ideas <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"> Lol<br><br>
I like the easy salads myself. Iceberg with a slice of tomato, then lots of cucumber <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"> A little thinly sliced red onion is pretty good aswell.<br>
I'm not a big spinach fan, but if you add some dressing you'll never taste the spinach.<br><br>
I usually just grab a bit of whatever we've got in the fridge and throw it together. Sometimes I toss snow peas in, or a little green pepper. Whatever needs to get used up. I made a bit of a salad and put it in a tortilla wrap with lots of black pepper... mmmmm

Haha, see, I would have said anything but iceberg, which has to be the most boring vegetable on the face of the planet. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br>
Hmm, 'kay, I like to throw nuts and avocado into practically all my salads. So the nuts would give you some good protein and fats, while the avocado is more fat. I also like sprinkling on ground hempseed - if available - and ground flaxseed. All of these things would be helpful in trying to put on weight / build muscle.

Morning KL1983 how are you doing?<br><br>
My best salad is lettuce, spinash, onion, mushroom, pineapple, avo with asparagus topped with some roasted seeds.<br><br>
Must admit thou I am more of a veggie person then salad person.<br><br>
Also take chickpeas, kidney, butter and green beans mix with onion and cut up tomato and make your own salad sauce with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and little bit of sugar.<br><br>
What about cous cous with butternut and red and yellow pepper.

<br><span style="color:#008000;">I honestly would rather not eat than eat iceberg. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/yes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":yes:"> But if one doesn't like spinach or other leafy greens (kale, collard/mustard/turnip ) or arugula and such, I suppose it serves a purpose. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br>
When I make a salad, I tend to make it really big. Usually spinach, some leafy greens or a multiple lettuce mix (bagged) if I'm feeling lazy or need to cut corners for expenses. Then I add in tomato, bell pepper (red ones are my favorite but I like them all), raw broccoli, avocado, carrots (not matchstick ones, I like to crunch on them), cucumber or celery for more crunch. I also like to use garbanzo or kidney beans. My fiance likes the Morningstar Chik'n strips (the ones in the bag) on salad so a lot of times we add those in. Olives and mushrooms are also good, but some don't like them so they're obviously optional.<br><br>
I've also added in jalapeno or other hot peppers, but I tend to like spicier foods.<br><br>
For dressing, we usually do a balsamic vinaigrette or something along those lines. I prefer oily dressings to creamier ones, but that's personal preference.<br><br>
It really just boils down to what you like, and/or what you're needing from the salad's contents.</span>

<br><span style="color:#008000;">How did I forget pineapple? It's definitely good in salad! I've tried mandarin orange slices too, which are nice. I've also heard of strawberries being used.</span>

Hey, kasandra! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> I'm doing just fine, thank you. Up past my bedtime as usual, what else is new? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> How are you?<br><br>
Brandon, it's like... eating crunchy water? I'm not 100% crazy about all greens (Swiss chard, for instance, is so so... bit too strong for me), but I like most of them, and I want them to be flavorful. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
Mmm, you're all making me want to eat salad, though. I've never had asparagus in a salad before, that sounds interesting. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> And pineapple, yum... I sometimes toss dried fruit in mine, that's good, too.<br><br>
Oooh, sliced strawberries, onion, sesame seeds, and balsamic vinaigrette, tossed into mixed greens. Oh, I haven't had that since last summer, and I would kill for it right now.

<br><span style="color:#008000;">Iceberg is nothing but cold and crunchy. And watery. So....yup. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:"><br><br>
Spinach + strawberries + pecans + vinaigrette is a very tasty simple salad too.</span>

You guys and your anti-ice berg agenda... It just gives the salad some volume <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"> It's not added for taste.

Pfft, who needs that? Add tasty volume! Romaine, arugula, spinach (for those who like it), etc. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

Mmmm Taco Salad! Get some lettuce, spinach leaves, the TVP crumbles, (I may be wording that wrong, not the TVP chunks but the TVP with a consistency similar to ground beef), tomatoes, olives, soy cheese, cilantro, tortilla chips, etc. Yummmy!<br><br>
Flavor the TVP in veg. chicken broth and season with cumin and any other spices you find delightful.

The one I eat almost everyday is Romaine lettuce, some raw broccoli, a couple sliced golf ball sized tomatoes, celery, avocado, mashed black olives, canned corn, extra virgin olive oil, some dried basil, oregano, onion powder, garlic powder, balsamic vinegar.<br><br>
If I have plenty of nutritional yeast, I'll sprinkle some on top.<br><br>
I don't add any salt. The corn and olives have a little salt and the tomatoes and vinegar add enough saltiness.<br><br>
Once in a while I will add swiss chard leaves, but I got tired of it usually having a bunch of bug holes eaten in it.
