The ways in which one can create a salad are endless! With such a large variety of salads out there, there's no need to confine ourselves to the routine dinner salad topped with our favorite bottled dressing. Salads are so versatile, and can be served for lunch, as a dinner salad before a main course, the main course itself or a side dish along with a main course. Salads can come in the form of leafy
greens, such as Romaine leaves, iceberg lettuce, butter lettuce or red lettuce, as well as watercress, spinach arugula and more. Salads can also be made with vegetables (such as potatoes, carrots, asparagus, beans and cucumbers), pasta, cabbage (for coleslaw), tuna and eggs, as well as fruits and gelatins.

Salads provide a healthy dose of fiber, vitamins and minerals (some more than others, depending on the salad ingredients used). As shown below, they can contain any variety of ingredients, including avocado, chicken, pasta, tomatoes, bean sprouts, celery, fruit, beans, corn chips, seafood, and can be dressed with any number of salad dressings. Below you will find recipes for a variety of leafy green and other salads, as well as some potato salad recipes. Salads are almost always quick and easy to put together, with just a little chopping and mixing - and if you let your creative side emerge, will be entertaining as well as delicious!
