Salads are good for you–we should all eat more salads. There are so many things to put in a salad so that it’s not that ho-hum “house” or “chef’s” salad. Sometimes I find combinations that just do SO well that I think that they are worth sharing. This page is going to be a list of the combinations that I think are particularly good….it will continue to grow. Unless a dressing is specified–it will have been a basic vinaigrette with your choice of vinegar or another acid.

- Radicchio, arugula, dates, hazelnuts, feta cheese. (A friend brought this as a follower for oyster chowder–it’s a great combo. )
- Bleu cheese: I love bleu cheese, and I’m looking for a good recipe (creamy or maybe not; mayo or maybe not). Imagine my surprise when I found a bleu cheese that I like in a meal plan for weight loss! The recipe from is a good one Always Hungry? for a creamy dressing.
