    I am a saladaholic so I like to mix it up so it's not the same every night.
    I put 5 ingredients in when making a salad. From cheese, feta cheese, rocket, lettuce, red or white onion, different types of tomatoes, fresh herbs, olives, carrot, snow peas, leb and large cucumber, green and red capsicum.
    Sometimes I will put egg in my salads, sometimes I will put either orange, watermelon or mango in there. Only use balsamic dressing.

    I normally do a really basic cos lettuce, shredded carrot, lebanese cucumber, cherry tomato with a bit of garlic infused virgin olive oil drizzled over the top. throw in some avo and mushroom if I have managed to pick up some fresh/ripe ones in my grocery shop.

    I drool over a good Waldorf salad or Ceasar Salad though.

    (and am looking forward to getting my thermie so I can whip up the delicious raw beetroot, apple, corriander salad!)

    Good luck with the weight loss.

    ...oh and the beetroot and pumpkin salad with feta cheese from Sumo Salad is DELISH!

    Sometimes to make the salad more filling I will put either

    Small tin of tuna, cup of kidney beans or cup of chick peas

    Just FYI because I found this fascinating when I found out ... iceberg lettuce apparently contains very little nutrients so always go for any other lettuce bar this one. My GP and naturopath told me the same thing so I'm inclined to think they're probably right.

    It varies. Some of my favourite fillings are baby spinach leaves/rocket/other leafy greens, pepitas or pine nuts, apple, feta, tomato, cucumber, chick peas, sprouts, olives, avocado, roasted pumpkin & sweet potato.

    Usually dressed with balsamic vinegar or olive oil.

    As in dressing? Vinegar or lime, sweet chilli sauce and a little oil is yummy but not the healthiest; balsamic, mustard and olive oil; lemon, mustard, olive oil; white balsamic and olive oil, sweet and yummy; lemon, garlic, fresh herbs, oil;

    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.

    Lettuce, cucumber, tomato, mushrooms, onions, capsicum, apple, avocado, beansprouts, rice noodle and some herbs like mint and coriander drizzled with fish sauce and fresh chillis. But I know some people dont like fish sauce but thats my salad.

    spinch leaves or rocket, feta cheese or just normal cheese, cherry tomatoes, red onion, avocado & capsicum, cucumber

    spnich leaves or rocket, pumpkin bites, fetta cheese, a teeny bit of red onion & pine nuts - my person fav!

    With balsamic vinegar normally.

    A friend adds grapes, or mandarin bits or apple to hers and its always amazing! DH does like fruit in his dinner though! lol!

    *for an lazy dinner I will but some ham/chicken/turkey meats from the deli, with some sundried tomatoes/stuffed peppers/pestoy type thiings, throw together a salad and have a 'meat platter' dinner. Always a hit!
