I've always been that kind of girl...
The one who always orders a salad when going out to eat. It's like my husbands favorite quality about me...
I also always order water, change and switch 50% of the salad toppings, and usually end up sending it back because the order is All Wrong! And just when I can't be annoying enough, I slowly start sneaking bites off of other people's meals because my lettuce and water weren't satisfying enough.
I can only think of like 1 or two places that have amazing salads, and it's all because of their toppings. I'm a 75% toppings and 25% lettuce kind of gal. Add a bomb dot com dressing and I basically could eat salad every single meal. No need to build a plate of everyones leftovers.
It just causes lots of weird looks, and less invitations to go out to eat.

It's not a fancy salad that takes a lot of work, more of something that you could make quickly and enjoy that night! Don't forget the bomb dot com salad dressing to go alongside!
