Salads are a welcome meal any time for me..:) And I personally prefer food that isn’t too high on spices, but instead have a balance of flavours. So salads just work great! For those who like a creamy base in their salads, Russian Salad is a great option. You can leave out the chicken and make it a vegetarian salad. It uses cooked vegetables, but which still have some crunch in them. Pineapple is another addition in this which I personally love. It adds to that sweet and tangy flavour of the salad.
