Salads galore

Over the past week I’ve tried a few different salad (and salad-like) recipes and I thought I’d share some of the winners with you.

Mexican Chopped Salad with Honey-Lime Dressing

Don’t let the dressing scare you off… this is a wonderful salad.  I’ve made it twice now and have decided that both grilled steak and tomatillos are good additions.  I chose to use a Sheep Feta and it works very well.  I wouldn’t suggest a goat feta for this salad.

Asian Chicken Salad with Snap Peas and Bok Choy

This salad is perfect as-is.  I attemtped a variation using Tuna instead of chicken the second time I made it.  Mistake.  Big mistake.  If you don’t have ponzu, mix a little citrus juice with soy for a similar taste.

Sesame Soba Noodles with Cucumber, Bok Choy, and Mixed Greens

Okay, this isn’t really a salad, but it is almost one.  This is another scary sounding recipe, but it is quite good.  I made very minor additions (I added grilled tofu, some thin slices of bell pepper and a dash of fish sauce to the dressing), but I tasted it prior to the additions and it was very good.

So, with Salad Season in full swing, what are some of your good salad recipes?
