I used to happily eat tons of salad but I would put olive oil, lemon, garlic, salt and pepper on them . Now when I eat a salad without the dressing it is just bleck! I can barely eat it. I've tried a few raw dressings like mango and tomato, tahini and lemon, corn and tomato, avocado, tomato, and cilantro... but nothing seems to satisfy. I know I need the greens...so my question is: Does it get better? Will my taste buds come to enjoy such a plain salad?
Avocado and cucumber sounds good....especially with herbs.
yeah i am having the same prob about plain leafs, i love oil and salt and lemon and proper balsamic.
plain leafs kind of make me gag, unless i pick them from a garden and eat them.
Your tastebuds will adjust eventually. Lately, I've just been having my 1 lb. of lettuce, chopped fine, drizzled with lemon or lime. I'm finding it easier to down the all that salad the more plain it is.
I don't have a scale. How can I estimate a pound?
Get a scale, darlin'.
I think there's a chart in the book.
Oh yeah! I'll look.
I know this isn't really considered a salad. But if you are concerned about green things. I make a "salad" with chopped apple, grapes and celery which is really good. Kind of like sweet and salty popcorn. LOL. Anyways - just another way to get the green stuff in without having to worry about dressing. Good luck!
After a few days of eating nothing but bananas, I relish the flavor of some plain butter lettuce, even romaine lettuce.
Thanks. And yeah...I figured out the bombard your salad with tomatoes thing tonight. Had a piece of tomato about every-other bite. Made it better.
When i dip lettuce in date pudding (dateorade with only little water), i could eat 2 pounds in one sitting easily. So delish! The better chips'n'salsa.
