  • I like to take an ordinary salad and make it a bit more. In the supermarkets you can buy in the jars marinated vegetables like cauliflower, carrots, artichoke hearts, etc. that make the usual salad taste a whole lot better.

  • I like to make mine with pimentos, green and black olives, purple onions, or vidallias, ham and cheeses, and loads of blue cheese chunks. Also always having a cesear (spell check) dressing, and a ranch choice

    Additions like crutons, eggs, and sprinkles of seeds or walnuts are nice.

  • Roasted Pepper Chicken Salad

    • 2 cups grilled chicken - cubed
    • 1 cup butternut squash – skin removed, cubed, and cooked
    (steamed until tender)
    • 1/2 cup roasted red peppers – roughly chopped
    • Olive oil – to taste
    • Dried rosemary – to taste

    Step 1: Place the chicken, squash, and peppers in a mixing bowl.
    Step 2: Drizzle on the olive oil and sprinkle with the rosemary, start with about 1/4 tsp.
    Step 3: Toss salad carefully so as not to break down the squash pieces too much. Adjust oil and rosemary to taste. Salt and pepper, if desired.
    Serve over mixed greens, any type that you like. I like a mixture of romaine and red leaf.
