Salad Bar

Sunday, May 16, 2010

Sometimes during the summer we have salads on Sunday evenings for dinner. Tonight I put together a salad bar, that way, everyone could assemble his or her own salad. Set the different items out on the counter in small bowls so everyone can see the choices. Here are some ideas for a salad bar:

  • Beans (kidney beans, garbanzo beans, etc.)
  • green beans
  • cucumbers
  • shredded carrots
  • chopped bell peppers
  • chopped hard boiled egg
  • bacon bits (real bacon cooked and chopped up, not the fake stuff in the jar)
  • grilled chicken
  • tuna, salmon, shrimp, or crab
  • diced ham
  • diced tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, and/or grape tomatoes
  • sunflower seeds, croutons, sliced almonds, chopped nuts, and/or crunchy noodles
  • cooked pasta
  • Cheese, shredded or cubed (of course I would have this on my salad bar).
  • An assortment of greens
  • An assortment of dressings
The possibilities are endless and kids especially love having a choice of what to eat. Daniel points to all the different toppings he wants on his salad, he loves it!

Until next time, happy and HEALTHY cooking!
