I finally found MY type of salad. I use to dread salad but I always enjoyed the toppings, so I suffered through the lettuce.

Today, I was hungry at lunch time and I knew I needed something filling. So I put leftover green beans in a bowl and added red bell pepper, radish, cucumber, and Easter egg, along with 2 Tbsp. of Italian dressing. It was so good and so filling. So its like a topping salad. Why do I think salads have to have lettuce in them. I could eat this everyday....

    I don't know what I would do if I didn't love salad. A green bean salad with peppers sounds delicious too. It's great when we stumble into a new favorite.

    Hope all it well!

    I like how you added "Easter eggs" to your salad - so funny! But you're right. The lettuce is just a medium to the other things. You should Google for "Mediterranean salad ideas" because they tend to be all about toppings (just avoid the pasta ones).

    I am TOTALLY with you! I would rather just have the toppings too! A full blown salad, in my mind, needs dressing. But if I just have tomatos, carrots, peppers, etc. I can eat them plain. So I feel like salads are a waste because of the delicious creamy dressing. But I guess if you can mash up eggs, and stir it up with mayo and call it egg salad then a salad can be anything! That reminds me of a recipe on SparkRecipes called Broccoli slaw. I need to make that again...
