Salads don't have to be made with lettuce, tomatoes and cucumbers every time. I'm happy to say that I eat a lot of salad! I think it's the crunch I love! And you can make really interesting combinations year round.
To keep things interesting I always come up with new combinations of flavors and textures, warm and room temperature salads. Sometimes I don't even use greens in a salad! I am a big fan of toasting some nuts – almonds, pecans and walnuts in particular, to sprinkle over a goat cheese salad or to offset the tang of a citrus vinaigrette.
I always make my own vinaigrettes, and my pantry is full of different varieties of oils and vinegars. Citrus also make great additions to vinaigrettes - use a piece of lettuce or other ingredient in your salad to taste your dressing, and season with salt and pepper as needed.
