  • I like baby spinach but I can't use it in family salads b/c of MIL's blood thinner.

    Lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, green onions, mild banana peppers, black olives ... if I'm making taco salad I will add either ground beef or shredded chicken. Salad dressings ... blue cheese or ranch.

  • For a green salad usually a comination of 2 or three lettuces, grape tomatoes, shredded red cabbage, grated carrots, chopped red onions, sometimes baby spinach. For toppings salad dressing choices since some like spicey and others want only lemon, sunflower seeds or chopped smoked almonds, bacon bits, croutons (usually butter and garlic flavored), shredded co-jack cheese. I put only the greens in bowls and everyone tops with what they choose.
