    Wow! These are great! Thanks guys!

    I have never thought of putting pumpkin and sweet potato in. Like I've seen it done before but never tried doing it myself...so I'm going to give that a whirl next time.

    This is good to know thanks. Since I've cut down the calories I've had to make sure that whatever I do eat is jam packed with nutrients.

    For salads themselves anything goes! My latest favourite is topping them with crunchy pumpkin chips, just deep fry strip of pumpkin that you've cut using a vege peeler, drain well, cool till crunchy. If you like sprinkle with a little cumin. Nice over a lamb and spinach with chickpea or lentil salad.
    Oh those dressings sound devine...I am so going to try the mustard one for starters...

    Deep roasted sesame dressing (by kewpie brand) is delicious. It's very bad for you but so yummy. You can get it from Asian grocers

    For a dressing I like balsamic vinegar, olive oil, lemon juice and garlic.

    My favourite side salad is actually really simple: spinach leaves, bocconcini, tomato and balsamic vinegar.

    For salad as a meal my favourite is roast pumpkin, chickpeas, grilled onion, Parmesan, spinach leaves and fetta.

    We are all addicted to raw beetroot salad lately! Chop into small cubes:

    3 Baby beetroot
    2 Celery stalks
    1 Carrot
    1 small Red onion
    2 Apples
    Small bunch Coriander
    Handful chia seeds

    crumble over a lot of goats cheese feta and dress with;
    Olive oil
    Lemon juice
    White balsamic vinegar
    Mix it all up and it turns bright pink! DS loves it but be warned beetroot stains!

    We have a few favourites.

    Mixed lettuce & rocket, bacon, feta cheese and baked pumpkin pieces. Or if I'm feeling lazy baked sweet potato chips. No dressing.

    Chicken salad. Lettuce cups with a drizzle of dressing of your choice. Dh & DD1 use french while I use Paul Newmans Classic Caesar (my favourite) then the salad is BBQ chicken pieces, red onion, cucumber, red capsicum and chives mixed with mayonaise. Just serve that on the lettuce and dressing.

    Normal salads are usually lettuce, red capsicum, red onion, cucumber, tomato and snow peas. It makes a nice change to cut it all up really small sometimes too even the lettuce.

    Balsamic dressing, or just some balsamic vinegar mixed with olive oil.

    My fave dress is that lemon one they use at Sumo Salad. Anyone have a recipe for something similar they want to send me?
