    Making a vinaigrette is definitely my go to: 3 parts oil (usually olive or sesame), 1 part acid (lemon juice, red wine vinegar, sherry vinegar, balsamic vinegar, etc.). Whisk it all together until it emulsifies and then add any herbs and spices you like.

    I also like taking a ripe avocado and mashing it into the salad, it kind of turns into a creamy dressing on it's own after a minute or so of stirring.

    Homemade blue cheese dressing (me), homemade thousand island (husband) or raspberry/walnut vinaigrette.

    Also I like to have contrasting textures on salads. So if the greens are soft and leafy then I make sure to add some crunchy things like nuts or seeds, and if the greens are more crispy then I add some softer, creamier things like avocado or cheese.

    I like set of 4oz gloves and a glittery pink tutu on mine.

    LOL.

    I don't eat cold veggies too often, but tomatoes with a can of sardines on top is nice. If the oil from the sardines isn't enough, I add a little olive oil and lemon juice. That's more of an "I want to eat something right now" meal than a planned out salad.

    Sometimes I'll put ground beef, tomato, cucumber and top it with a mix of yellow mustard ACV.

    I experiment and make my own dressings. the last one was a mix of macadamia nut oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, ginger, garlic powder, cilantro and a dash of cayenne pepper. It was very good.

    I want to try this brand of salad dressings... About Our Product - Tessemaes All Natural

    Lemon juice and/or vinegar. I used to do olive oil and vinegar, but I am finding adding olive oil to be pointless to the taste, so why bother with the extra?
