When I made my New Year’s resolution to eat salad every weekday for the month of January, my goal was to become an expert salad eater. Make my own dressings, totally branch out… yeah. As you can see, that hasn’t really happened. I have become really good at making salads that I love, it’s just that they might not be wonderful for you and they’re not all that adventurous.
These are my favorite dressings:
- Ken’s Light Honey Mustard
- Hidden Valley Light Ranch
Here are the toppings that I have tried the last two weeks:
- Baked chicken (in BBQ sauce)
- Hardboiled eggs
- Cheddar cheese
- Black beans
- Green pepper
- Raw mushrooms
- Grape tomatoes
- Sliced almonds
- Croutons (3 different flavors!)
- Crispy onions (like French’s)
I have to say that I really like eating salad more than I would have thought. Maybe the second half of January will bring a little more adventurous eating.
What are your favorite things to put on a salad?

I love getting creative with salads! Try adding some apples or berries. Adds lots of depth to a salad.
Ooh, that's a great idea! Thanks!
Agree with Supal, apples are great.. as well as pears, grapes, pecans/any nuts. Goat cheese is fantastic. One of my favorite/easiest dressings to make is a little apple cider vinegar, a little olive oil, s&p, honey to taste, whisk. Yum :]
Yum! I'm going to have to try that dressing soon! Thanks!
Those look sooo good, and I love honey mustard dressing! Honestly, even though you might not think you're putting the healthiest things on your salad, it's a lot healthier than a lot of other things you could be eating so I say GO GIRL :)
Yum yum yum! That salad looks amazing! I totally laughed out loud when I saw the post on Twitter. I'm so glad I'm not the only one that has seen that Spongebob episode “salll-aaaaaad”

I need to get better about eating salads! This is a great goal to have! I love that you're doing it every weekday for a month! I might need to do this sometime. :)
I love putting apples or craisins on my salad. A little sweet is delish! Yours looks so yummy!
That does sound good- I'm going to have to give it a try! Thanks!
These salads look outstanding. I am sure they tasted even better. I can't wait to see your month in review – on salads and hopefully snag a few for myself. I am desperately seeking lunch ideas.
