What do you know, salads can be delicious

I was a meat and potato person for 70 years. Then my wife and daughters started eating more vegetables and paying attention to their weight and blood pressure, etc. So in the last 5-10 years I drifted over into eating more vegetables and fruits and away from red meat. I eat a lot of fish, and have red meat only once or twice a month. Many meals are just vegetables. I've lost weight and feel pretty good for someone with a genetic heart ailment.

The point of the post, however, is to say that I have discovered that some of these salad shops that seem to be designed for women's luncheons really serve good food. Salads can really be both tasty and filling. I'm glad I found them and urge others to try them. These are not just lettuce and tomato with thousand island dressing. They are very imaginative and delicious. Give them a try, particularly for lunch.

I love veggies and a good salad. I make most of the meals and there are always a lot of good veggies with our meals. Nothing like a good salad to go with my pasta or steak.

Hy-Vee in Lincoln has a great salad bar, you can eat it there or take it home. Great selection. I'm sure other supermarkets have those as well.

Just made myself a new salad dressing for lunch. A little roasted walnut oil, splash of balsamic vinegar, and blended with a bit of liquified jalapeno. Nice and nutty, with a bit of zing for a spinach chicken salad with tomato, cucumber, and avocado.
