  1. wow! so many salad choices! I love salad and I can’t thank you enough for posting these great recipes here. thanks!

  2. These look like great recipes. I’m especially looking forward to the Asian Peanut Salad.

  3. There are so many wonderful ideas here – I’m excited to try shrimp & avocado! Soon as the weather warms up, I like having a substantive salad as a main dish, or at least a yummy light salad along with an entree. I don’t know how you managed to come up with all of these, but they are great!

Thanks for stopping by... leave me a note!
