  • We are a clean eating family - I love spring green mix - I can get it in big container for pretty inexpensive and load it up with other veggies, hard cooked eggs, cheese, meat....

    I don't eat mcdonalds or other fast food - so...can't answer that part.

    I love couscous and quinoa salads (for lunch I have a lemony tuna quinoa salad) yummy.

  • 50/50 Spring greens/baby spinach blend with cucumbers, tomatoes, broccoli, celery, anything we have that I can put on it really! It goes well with lots of dressings, and proteins, plus it's full of nutrients. Not really a fan of restaurant salads- they are much harder to customize to your preferences like additions and actual nutrition content.

  • I like lettuce with cucumbers and tomatos sliced in it. Then I squirt lime or lemon juice over it and sprinkle some salt and pepper.

  • I LOVE salad, when I have it at home I like the mixed veg/lettuce salad bag, cucumber, hard cooked egg whites (I hate yolk), bacon bits, tortilla strips, cheese, and dressing. I like either french or Italian. Sometimes I buy seafood salad from the deli and put a scoop of that on my salad. Sometimes I add extra veg to it.

  • my fave restraunt makes a sprout salad with balsamic vinegar. I *think* they cook the bacon bits then add balsamic vinegar to the bacon and bacon fat, then drizzle it over the sprouts. whatever the lettuce is it looks like dandelion leaves haha

    10 cups small spinach leaves or mesclun salad greens (about 8 ounces)
    To prepare dressing: Whisk yogurt, lemon juice, oil, cumin, ginger and garlic in a small bowl until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. To prepare salad: Combine chickpeas, cucumber, celery (or fennel) and carrots in a medium bowl. Add half the dressing and toss to coat.

  • Toss spinach (or mesclun) in a large bowl with the remaining dressing. Divide the greens among 6 plates and top with the vegetables. Serve immediately. MAKES 6 SERVINGS NOTE: When I feel ambitious, I make croutons from pita; for a crowd, top with vegetables in the serving bowl.

  • I like making myself Chef Salads.
    Lettuce and I chop up meat and cheese and maybe shred some carrots too. Then I had my fav salad dressing.

    Never tried the salads at McD's.
