    I heard tossed salad is pretty good. You should try that!

    Pretty easy, really.

    I go to Costco and get a big bag of mixed greens--the filed greens mix or sometimes it's called Eurpean or baby greens...--and it is a really good buy. the same thing in the grocery store costs much more per weight.

    Then I chop up just about anything raw veggie: green or yellow squash, cukes, carrots, celery, grape tomatoes, all kinds of onions, cabbage, whatever.

    Add your favorite dressing and you are good to go.

    You can also start with baby spinach and use some of the veggies above, or use fruit slices, like apples, or strawberries, grapefuit sections, orange sections,

    If you take you lunch to work, you can have the veggies shopped up in the fridge win plastic containers and play mix or match. Take along a small can of tuna or chicken or some cheese or some baked, chilled fish or chicken and a few crackers and you get to eat much better stuff than you can find at a fast food place.

    I like Ken's Lite salad dressings. They taste great and my store often has them 2 for 1.

    One of my favorites is the one my late mom used to make using baby spinach from the garden.
    Spinach
    Red Onion
    Manderin Orange
    Sliced almonds, toasted
    Bacon pieces

    Toss all and serve with ranch dressing

    Recipe?

    Raw veggies + cooked protein. Maybe some olive oil and balsamic vinegar if I remember. Nuts or fruit if I get fancy.

    balsamic dressing

    dijon mustard and/or wasabi
    horse radish
    crushed finely chopped garlic
    grated fresh ginger root
    balsamic vinegar (1/4 volume)
    cider vinegar (1/2 volume)
    olive oil (1/4 volume)

    prepare in an old dressing bottle (or the like) so that it can be shaken before use and the remainder stored in the refrigerator.
