To prepare meals for vegetarian family members, I make salad every day. Green salad, pasta salad with greens, bean salad with greens, potato salad…. and soon it became a chore.
When I was stuck in a rut, I found this chart. What is great about this chart is that it will help you choose and mix ingredients to make fun and tasty salads that you can create easily everyday.
If you try a different combination everyday, you won’t see the same salad for a while. Easy, fun and interesting is always a good thing when you prepare meals and it will be tasty, too.

While I was looking for salad ideas, I stumbled across this book in the library:
It was a love at first sight. Salads: Beyond the Bowl has everything that I like: photos of beautifully presented salads, interesting and non-traditional salad ingredients, and easy-to-follow instructions. Well, it’s salad cook book, it is the way it should be isn’t it? I also like that the salads are grouped by type, so it is easy to find the kind of salad that you are looking for. This smart author didn’t mix meat and leaf salads.
Take a look at the table of contents below:
Chapter 1: Elemental Salads to mix and match
Chapter 2: Leaf Salads
Chapter 3: Eggs, Potatoes and Pasta: Classics Redux
Chapter 4: A Bounty of Beans, Grains and Legumes
Chapter 5: A bit if fish
Chapter 6: A Bit of Poultry and Game
Chapter 7: A bit of Meat
The Asparagus Mimosa with Capers, Radishes and Chives recipe on page 32 is a perfect dish to bring to your next potluck!
