Salads are not only healthy but they can also set the stage for romance; dressed for eye-appeal is perceived sexy and delicious. So when going out to eat is not always within reach of our budget—often, too, we just want to spend a quiet evening home, alone—hubby and I will sit to discuss our evening meal, creating salads with endless possibilities, visualizing and tasting. Here are just some of the pictures of salads we’ve imagined and concocted, adding any number of possibilities for dressings. And don’t forget a nice bottle of wine!
