1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Well... because I can't plan for crap, I ended up with 9 heads of lettuce to wipe out this week (between two people) - three hearts of romaine and 6 heirloom lettuces. The "Salad Experiment" is officially on. Sunday, I washed, chopped, spun and dried my greens and put some in a Foodsaver Produce Saver container (totally crap, save your money) and then filled a bunch of jars (easy transport to work) and vacuum sealed them up.

Yesterday, I ate my container of salad with a little mayo and 2 little packets of pickle relish mixed up with an envelope of tuna. It was very good.

Last night, my Mom bought us a Rotisserie Chicken, so I shredded the meat off of it, tossed it with some black beans, corn, a bit of ranch, and a bunch of greens. It was tasty.

Today, I had all the fixin's for an awesome Taco Salad (leftover taco meat, salsa, cheese, sour cream, crumbled chips), and I mixed it all up just in time to discover that the sour cream was bad, thus pretty much ruining everything. :-( I'm bummed. It had such great potential. I'm impressed, the greens are still fresh as daises, taste great, no complaints, but note to self: always sniff test sour cream before mixing it up in the salad. *sigh*

Tonight: I'm helping some friends unpack (they're moving to Parker - WOOHOOO!!!), so it'll be a break from salad, but tomorrow, I'm open to ideas for something new to try...

Cobb Salad?

I like my salads pretty simple: toss with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, top with shaved parmesan or goat cheese, almonds, and either mandarin oranges or dried cranberries....with some kind of protein to round it all off.

Another simple favorite would be: baby arugula, tossed in lemon juice and olive oil, top with shaved parmesan, and sometimes topped with toasted pine nuts.

Both go well with any kind of protein....

I'm sure Google can tell me, but what typically goes in a Cobb Salad?

Hmmm, maybe shaved parmesan, croutons and maybe some extra crispy turkey bacon? That sounds good.

Yep, Cobb Salad is a bed of greens topped with chopped hard boiled eggs, chopped tomatoes, chopped ham and/or turkey, and bacon bits (you can make it turkey bacon if you like, but because some turkey bacon has a higher salt content than regular bacon, it's not better than real bacon), and other chopped veggies....
