    How do you dress your salads?

    We all know that eating our veggies without any fat, doesn't do us any good in terms of absorbing nutrients! So...

    How do you DRESS YOUR SALAD?!

    Personally, I love topping my salads with grilled vegetables (drowning in olive oil), olive tapenade, and fatty fish... Expand my palette with your ideas!

    I sprinkle on salt, grind black or white pepper, a little cider or wine vinegar, some olive oil, and then just push it around a bit.

    Perfection is entirely individual. Any philosophy or pursuit that encourages individuality has merit in that it frees people. Any that encourages shackles only has merit in that it shows you how wrong and desperate the human mind can get in its pursuit of truth.

    I'm eating a salad right now which consists of spinach with shredded chicken, butternut squash, sliced almonds, and chia seeds, topped with sesame oil and rice vinegar. Delicious!

    @SpitFire - Yum! I love butternut squash on salads!! Sounds like you're getting ample fat to absorb those nutrients!
    @CiKi90 - I am totally stealing your recipe....... That sounds amazing. I could see it dressing a delicious seared tuna salad with sesame seeds and grilled asparagus!
    @Kochin - Sardines in oil on salads = AMAZING!
    @eKatherine - Simple, light and delicious! Never fail

    You can make mayo based dressings that get you some fat and protein to go with your greenery.

    Basic mayo is two eggs in a blender whizzed up then drizzle in very slowly oil of your choice until desired thickness occurs (about a cup). I like avocado oil for this.

    From there you can add some balsamic and some anchovies for a caesar dressing or lemon and mustard or whatever tickles your tastebuds.

    Someone suggested guacamole to me, and that's what I've been doing. It works great, and I've been adding chicken, ham, turkey, green & black olives, etc.

    My favorite salad is taco so:
    - 1 blob sour cream mixed with Cholula or Tabasco
    - 1 blob of guacamole

    For chef or Cobb salads (with wand blender):
    - 6 oz. macadamia or avocado oil
    - 2 oz. white wine vinegar
    - black pepper (or dried herbs)
    - mustard
    - blue cheese crumble
    - anchovies (small tin)

    In a sealed glass jar it keeps for a long time
