YUM! your salads are making me hungry!  Grin Grin Grin
i agree with sweet_apple_pie that cabbage is way better for you, but i still like a dark leafy lettuce.

here is a slaw, but that's a salad right?

head of cabbage- all sliced up into bits
1 bunch of green onions (optional)

2 packages of Ramen noodle seasoning
1/3 cup cider vinegar or rice wine vinegar
cup sugar (more or less to taste)
cup oil

2 packages Ramen noodles, broken up (Oriental flavor - or 1 oriental, 1 chicken)
4 oz. package of almond slivers

Combine salad ingredients and dressing ingredients separately. Toss salad with dressing and topping right before serving.

i offer two favorites.

pretty strawberry salad
3-4 cups baby spinach
1/4 a red onion cut in thing strips
2 cups strawberries, sliced however you like
1 cup crumbled feta cheese

top with rasberry vinagrette and toss at table for added visual prettyness.  i do this one for guests, and often get told how amazing it looks.

tasty chicken cheese salad
1/2 cup cooked cubed chicken
1/4 cup cubed feta
1/8 cup cubed mozzarella
one tomato diced
1/2 a sweet onion diced
3-4 cups romance lettuce
1 cup green leaf lettuce

i like to top this with poppy seed dressing

A Pasta Salad I picked up:
cut up cucumber, green and red peppers, baby tomatoes, and celery (if you want). Mix those with pre-boiled tricolored noodles (for color) and pepperoni. Cover in Italian dressing, mix with Italian seasoning, Parmesan cheese,  and fresh herbs (as wanted)

Refrigerated and eat when cool.

OH YUM!!!  I'm going off to visit my mother-in-law and I always do the cooking.  Looks like we are going to be having a LOT of salad.  Here are a couple of my favorites.

Baby spinach
fresh ripe pears
applewood smoked bacon (if you can find it)
a natural flavored raspberry vinaigrette or I prefer a nice balsamic one.

I also love love love Garlic Expressions Salad Dressing.  I make a chop salad with navy beans, olives, peppers, cucumbers, carrots, celery including some of the leaves and tomatoes.  I chop them all about the same size, line them up on the plate and pour the dressing over. I usually add a sprinkle of very thinly sliced onion over the beans. 

Here is the link to the salad dressing http://www.garlic-expressions.com/ I have nothing to do with them although I've bought enough of the stuff to float a battlship!

A box of plain couscous (ditch the flavor packet, it's nothing but salt!), some grilled chicken cut up, blanched broccoli florets, scallions, celery and a ton of lemon juice. It tastes so refreshing.

This one is actually adapted from a recipe from the P90X workout program that my bf uses.  Greta for the summer, especially if you have a grill!

Romaine Hearts
Red, Yellow, Green Bell Peppers (raw)
Black Beans (or chickpeas)
Thinly Sliced Grilled Sirloin Steak (Can substitute Portabello Mushrooms for the non-meaties)

1 tsp Minced Garlic
1 Tbs  any brand Steak Grill Seasoning
2 dashes Worcestershire Sauce
2 Tbs Dijon Mustard
1 dash Hot Sauce
1/2 cup White Wine Vinegar
1/4 cup Red Wine Vinegar
3/4 cup  Oil

Let the veggies sit in the vinaigrette for about half an hour to break down and then just place the meat (grilled mushrooms) on top!

Here are my faves:

Everyday Salad
Romaine or Euro mix lettuce
Slivered Almonds (toast or not, to your pleasure)
Shredded Cheddar (or other)
Light Balsalmic (I like Paul Newman)

Now, if your talking pasta salad, I found one (it's from either Tastefully Simple or Pampered Chef), that uses bow-tie pasta, smoked mozza, cherry/grape tomatoes, fresh basil, and balsamic. Let it sit and meld for a few hours before chowing.  Great alternative to mayo-based ones, which I hate.

I miss Spinach Bacon salad. I can't seem to find a good one here in AZ.


Baby Spinach
Sliced Mushrooms
Sliced Red Onions
Sliced Tomato
Hard Boiled Egg
Lots of Delicious Bacon

Then you pour on a hot bacon dressing so that it wilts the lettuce.
Mmm . . .

I've made this recipe from the magazine Everyday Food several times and it is just perfect!  It would probably be good with chicken or steak instead of pork, too:
