I rarely use lettuce, seems tasteless, relatively lacking in nutrition value, though high in fiber. I usually will use spinach and cabbage and go from there. The ideas about using fresh broccoli sound good, as it is more palatable to me UNcooked. Love those little cherry or grape tomatoes, but are SO expensive! For crunchiness I use sunflower seeds, yummm...

Anyone have a good homemade dressing recipe?? I never buy dressing, always tastes bad, so wind up just using olive oil and rice vinegar. Then sprinkle on some herbs, whatever I am growing at the time.

What is grape tomatoes?
I love tofu! It is soy/curd mix with soy sauce- excellent salad- which vegetarians eat to get their protein (instead of fatty meats)

grape tomatoes are less tart, and similar to cherry tomatoes.

Same for me. Most of the store bought dressing has a pretty crappy taste. I start with good quality ( expensive! ) olive oil, add some balsamic vinegar and Braggs Aminos for a bit of salty flavor, & various herbs depending on my mood.

Someone mentioned lettuce as being tasteless, which is absolutely true of iceberg head lettuce. ( does iceberg lettuce have any nutritional value? ) However, there are other types of lettuce that are actually very good tasting and probably provide some nutritional value too.

Soy beans are a good source of protein,not just for vegetarians,here in the San Gabriel Valley is a common diet within the Asian community.

Ah, Franco, thanks for the reminder! My sister does that, and uses sesame seeds in it, very delicious on fresh spinach and bacon bits (kosher only!). Now my task is to find Braggs in Texas!!

You should be able to find Braggs Liquid Aminos (broken link)in just about any health food store, even in Texas. It's a common item that has been around for many years. If for some reason you can't find it in a store, you could buy it online directly from Bragg.

regards...Franco

Cherry tomatoes are so easy to grow, even in a pot on a patio. At least that way you'd have an endless and cheap cheap cheap supply during the summer.
