good {healthy} groceries.


we eat a mess of greens in this household..
usually i chop & assemble
varied ingredients in a bowl. this time
the only thing IN the bowl was greens.
everything else remained on the board
for individual preferred salads.
makes for a pretty table..


i picked up a small ciabatta roll .. 
sliced & served on its own cutting board


add just a drizzle of balsamic vinaigrette 



.yUm.

::personal preference::
i remove stems from the greens.
it takes additional time in the prep
but the end result pleases.
do you remove stems from greens?

I am a stem remover! This is such a wonderful idea, and makes it fun and beautiful to assemble a delicious salad!

Another stem remover checking in! I love this idea. When my dear, little mother was alive I always set out a 'salad bar' for choices. Hers were far different than mine and my sweetheart's varies a bit from mine. Everyone was thrilled - well, at least I think they were! - to have an assortment of things to choose. Now I need a board!

First off....looks delicious. Am trying to eat more greens, veggies. Most the time I do de-stem.

Your salads always look Yummy, Sherry. And so healthy too. Yes, I try to remove most of the stem, but not all of it. And my favorite is butter lettuce, although, spinach lettuce is a good one too. You have a nice variety of foods in the salad. Love those artichoke hearts. The bread looks great. Now, I want a salad! ; )

Deanna ... thank you :)
adding more veg to our diets is so important.

and gravy... everything in moderation, hm?

What a pretty presentation! And so smart too, as not everyone likes all the ingredients I toss in a salad. Assembling their own with only what they want is so much better than picking things out.

I am generally a stem remover. However, if I'm short on time, the stems will stay on the baby spinach.

Have a great day,
Patti

This would be a great solution to my salads that grow. I start out with good intention but by the time I finish my salads are huge and Precious Husband gasps when I set it down. We are trying to get more greens in too and we love salads. It does make for a very pretty presentation.
