But then I remembered two salads that I had recently, that I went back for seconds... and thirds... oh my, they were good.
The first was just a simple, basic salad - romaine lettuce, chopped tomatoes, and chopped carrots.... and avocado!

The second was again very simple. Chopped romaine lettuce, sliced apples, chopped walnuts, and dried cranberries. The dressing had olive oil, pepper, ginger for a bit of zing and spice. My friend made this when we went over to help plan the race she hosts in July (Freedom Fest Hawaii), to butter us up :-)
So yummy. Both of them. I wouldn't say that I am a salad lover, but I loved those two salads. Man, I am so hungry.
I know - needs pictures :-( But trust me! Try the salads - they are delicious! And I will come back for pictures. Sorry - I spent the weekend volunteering at the HURT 100 - a 100 mile endurance race here in Hawaii. It was intense and I was only volunteering.
