Big Salad


Dinner was a big salad with oil and vinegar, salmon, onions, jalapeno peppers and celery. It took me a minute to figure out why I was sitting at the dinner table with tears in my eyes. That was one potent onion; I eat them raw and I love them.

    This salad looks heavenly! I had one tonight with dinner too, but it was only a spinach salad with some seasoning and olive oil drizzled over it. Not nearly as creative and yummy as yours was.

    Hope you had great day, my friend!

      ron, i’m such a dummy. sitting there wiping my eyes wondering what the heck as my face is several inches from my plate and then it hit me; i need better posture at the table, lol

  2. What a beautiful salad! Your salad picture should be in a food magazine! Alas — if I do salad, it’s croutons, bacon, cheese, french fried onions, sunflower seeds and whatever other unhealthy toppings they might have out. I guess that defeats the purpose of eating a salad.

    Again — beautiful picture!

      thanks frances. i wonder if a food and magazine company would like to buy it. hmmmm.

      i love “stuff” in my salad, but because saturday is my rest day and i don’t work out, i couldn’t afford to eat anything else for dinner but salad. it was a big salad and i didn’t think i’d be able to finish it, but i cleaned that plate and would have licked it if there was anything left. it was filling until i got up around 10 30 and had a yogurt.

  3. Hey, did you have any dressing with that salad? And you can eat RAW JALAPENO peppers? Did you drink a glass of milk with it to calm the fire?

    I had a disappointing week food wise but yesterday I finally got back into the gym and did 45 minutes for 550 calories. I won’t be stepping on the scale for another three or four days since we’re going to Outback Steakhouse this afternoon to celebrate our anniversary with the kiddos.

      dressing, oh i forgot to add that. virgin olive oil and red wine vinegar. peppers don’t bother me much. i try to hold out from drinking water, sometimes it goes down wrong and i end up crying.

      cool, you’re back on track, that’s what’s important. i got on the scale this morning and i don’t freaking believe it. my weigh in day is friday, so i’ll wait before i document.

      outback steakhouse? i went there once and i think i had soup or something that didn’t involve meat. happy anniversary, cg! enjoy.

Speak on it!
