Thirteen favorite salad ingredients

This week for Thursday Thirteen
I present you with thirteen ingredients I enjoy in a salad:

  • Lettuce (usually sliced iceberg or Romaine lettuce)
  • Sliced pickled beets
  • Kirkland solid white albacore tuna (from Costco; I’m a tuna snob; if it looks and smells like cat food, I would rather not eat it.)
  • Kalamata olives
  • A few crumbled saltine crackers
  • Grape tomatoes (They’re sweet!)
  • Cooked, cold petite green peas
  • Gregg’s Savory Ranch dressing (my favorite)
  • Shredded cheddar cheese
  • Cucumber chips (pickles)
  • Hard-cooked eggs
  • Left-over broccoli salad
  • Left-over cole slaw

The last three ingredients are once-in-a-while ingredients. The others are usual.

How about you? What’s in YOUR favorite salad?

    Great TT! I love pinon nuts and dried cranberries, as well as slivers of jicama. Mmmmm. Nice thing about salad is there’s so many cool things you can add to them!
