I like salads and often like to include something like avocado, pickled roasted beets, palm hearts or canned or marinated artichoke hearts. The other day I made my version of chicken mei fun and opened a can of bamboo shoots which I do reluctantly because I usually end up throwing the rest of the can away a few days later. This time I drained the unused shoots and put them in a container with vinegar based salad dressing to cover. The next day I included them in the corn and tomato salad I brought to work for lunch. I love the texture and flavor and will not be throwing  them away again.

Neat idea. Thanks for sharing. Going to file it away and hope I can retrieve it at the appropriate time.

This looks delicious, Sophie!  I have a big, fat watermelon in the garden that is about ripe.  I will make this!

Salad of baby greens with fennel, celery, bacon, apple, pecans and a caramelized apple vinaigrette. Posted here on Apple thread also, but thought it fit well here also. Based on a recipe at Food52

Okay Im half joking half serious here...

 

I love salads! I eat one every day, but I sometimes dont want all that crunching and chewing. its too much at times. Salads take a long time to eat.

Has anyone ever juiced a salad?

Also these Dole Chopped Salads need to be eaten with a large spoon. They cannot be eaten with a fork.

FauxPas - nice-looking salad, very autumn-like with the apples and the nuts.

 

Summer is still in full swing in San Diego. Yesterday I made this quick salad for a picnic with baby tomatoes, grilled corn, feta, tarragon (homegrown). The dressing was kalamata olive oil with sherry & red wine vinegars, and plenty of back pepper.

Today for lunch I had this one with heirloom tomatoes, avocado, feta, tarragon, olive oil, red wine vinegar (and a glass of Zaca Mesa Chardonnay).
