    Tuna nicoise - can count the tuna as a healthy extra if on a green day

    I'm sure I have some others somewhere, will try to find them.

    What kind of salads do u normally have? If it's iceberg toms and cucumber u could change the lettuce for some lovely rocket or watercress. U could try the yellow or green tomatoes for a visual change. I love Greek salad so u could add feta and some olives. U can even have hot salads- jamie Oliver is mad on salads so u could have a look on line for some of his recipies. Just make a few adjustments to make them sw friendly.

    What a good question!! I always end up with the same salad. On a red day I do basic lettuce, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, spring onions all chopped up and mixed in a bowl, but getting bored of it now!!

    On a green day I do potato salad: boiled new potatoes, peas, grated carrot, boiled pasta, red onion and hellmans extra light mayonaise (0.5 syns per tablespoon) and it's yum!

    I like the idea given above of adding tuna. I should use peppers more too, they add a bit of colour.

    Cant think of anything else yet, but hopefully there will be a few more ideas.

    Have you tried tabbouleh?? Its really nice using bulgar wheat which is a bit of a cross between rice and couscous. You buy it dry in a bag and they normally have a tabbouleh recipe on the pack.

    I normally soak the bulgar wheat in veg stock and add some dried parsley, then add as much chopped tomatoes, cucumber, sping onion and peppers as I want add some lemon juice and sugar free mint sauce, its lovely and very refreshing.

    I agree! Grapes, apple chunks, cheddar, feta, gherkins - all lovely when added to an ordinary salad (obv not all at the same time!)

    I like to add some sweetcorn to my salads. I've been eating alot of fish stick salads recently, I'm a bit addicted to them with a splash of vinegar!
