Big salads are really only something woman can appreciate. And, okay, I realize the salad in this picture is not that big. I guess what I mean by "big" salad is that it has lots of toppings that make it interesting. A salad that's just lettuce and dressing is pretty boring. Tomatoes and cucumber definitely help, but even those are kind of staples when it comes to the ingredients of a salad. But add some dried cranberries and walnuts and BAM! You have yourself a very tasty salad. You could also take it a step further and add a hard-boiled egg, cheese, and tiny meat slices, but while those do provide protein for this meal, they are also extra calories, so keep these toppings to a minimum (I personally never add those things to a salad. But I will add plenty of carrots. Who can feel guilty after eating more carrots?). Ladies: enjoy your yummy salads while you can before you're married. Because once you have a man living at your home, he will NOT be satisfied with a "big salad" for dinner. Ever.
P.S. Yes, I was eating dinner in front of my computer. I don't always do that, but sometimes I just want to veg and watch a Netflix movie at my desk.
