  • I love salads as well. Mine is just a green salad. It has a ton of veggies. My mom makes a really good potato salad that she has to make where ever she goes for a party or pot luck!!

  • I don't do anything special. Average salad topped with pickles, black olives, sun flower seeds, real bacon bits, shredded carrots, cheese, broccoli, smothered in ranch dressing, topped with more shredded cheese and real bacon bits lol...but I'm the only one in my family that eats it like that.

    Potato salad...I miss that...haven't had that in a long time.
