In the winter I opt for roasted veggies instead of salad. I roast broccoli, cauliflower, green pepper, red pepper, cherry tomatoes, onion, zucchini. I make a big pan full and then enjoy them for a few days. ~Lynn @Glucerna

I eat a salad almost every day, mixed lettuces, and a mix of veggies, whatever is on sale at the grocers. Broccoli, cauliflower, eggplant (fried up), a bit of protein whatever is left over from last night or some tuna or chicken or egg salad, and some sunflowerseeds or nuts. I mix it up a bit every day so it doesn't get boring. I am currently on a kick of greek yogurt and a bunch of other goodies mixed together for a dressing. But, a lot of times I just do balsamic vinegar and olive oil. I guess-timate on the carbs in my salad.
best of luck on your salad making. HUGS, Heidi

You don't need a recipe. All you need is to remember a salad is a mix of raw and or cooked veggies with or without a dressing. That's it! So find yourself a good trust worthy grocery store and just pick something. Make it complicated and add meat for dinner or keep it simple to 3 ingredients for a side dish.. Mix your favorites, use left over veggies from the night before. Try kale, spinach, mixed greens. To keep your interest up buy only in season and what's on sale that way you wont get bored. But for a hint try strawberries, bacon, onions, and goat cheese. Or how about roasted cauliflower, pine nuts and a bit of white cheddar. Happy eating!

You are new here and perhaps unaware that DC has a recipes section. You will see the link to go there above. It is the 2nd link on the left in the dark blue bar. I am sure they have a section on salads in there. If not there is a search function strictly for recipes and just type in "salad" and you should get what a lot of options. One caveat, some salad recipes are more diabetes friendly than others mostly due to the ingredients of the dressing.

What are you eating now if not salads?

Christmas blessings to all
