    On these hot Texas days, I keep it very simple with bitter greens, cucumber, tomatoes, walnuts, orange segments, and maybe some feta cheese. I need some inspiration!

    walnuts!

    Last night it was romaine with shrimp cucumbers and homemade garlic ranch dressing! Melon sounds so great in a salad. I’ve never done that.

    At this late date in my salad adventures, I’ve learned that olive oil and lemon juice are my perfect dressing.

    Anything fresh from our garden plus cheese.

    I’ve been making a pesto-tomato-mayo dressing that’s a spinoff from Lowfat Moosewood. I make a soy-curl sort of topping that I read about on the Kitchn blog. I throw those two things into a giant bowl of greens, and I’m good to go. Somedays I add Eden’s spicy pumpkin seeds. This book looks delightful.

    My favorite salad changes with the season, but in summer I love doing a fresh sweet corn salad with walnuts, feta, and jalapeno!

    My favorite salad is a variation on the italian bread salad — beautiful colors, surprising flavors, satisfying. Lightly steamed broccoli raab, red onion and corn; plus moroccan oil-cured olives, cucumbers, red radish, basil, olive oil/balsamic, cubes of sourdough bread. YUM!!!

    We made a “Everything But The Kitchen Sink” Salad over the weekend to include, from our garden, butter lettuce, arugla, cherry tomatoes to which we tossed in my mothers re-pickled beets, goat cheese, sweet corn, sunflower seeds, shaved carrots and topped it off with a vinegrette made with strawberry vinegar. I love those salads!
