Tasty Tuesday: Salad Bar



I will admit that I do love a good salad. I think my love began in college. There was always a fresh salad bar for lunch and dinner. When I became a vegetarian in the midst of school, it became my go-to meal option. My favorite was cottage cheese, chickpeas and ranch dressing. I totally went without lettuce, never really liked the way it tasted and still don't hold it in high regards. But I do serve it when I make up what I either call "The Big Salad" or salad bar.

Here's the thing I love most about this meal, it lasts for days!! Most of the ingredients will keep in the fridge or on the shelf and allow you to go back and create a new tasty meal for a week and never eat the same thing twice. So chop up some lettuce, grab your favorite toppings, and dressing and have some fun! Need a few ideas? How about...
