Kale is very good for you like most members of the cabbage family. Borage grows tall plants with fuzzy leaves and lilac colored flowers; its leaves taste mildly of cucumber and it is a bit bitter so don t add too much to a salad. There are some herbs that you can plant once and they will self seed for years afterward (if you let them); these go well in a salad too. Dill and coriander are two of my father in law s perennial annuals that just keep on coming up in odd places in the garden and if you re not careful they can get out of hand. So weeding the seedlings for a salad is a good way to keep them under control and enjoy their flavor. By the time my father in law comes in from the garden at around 5 o clock he usually has two large plastic basins full of a wide assortment of greens.
Some are sweet and some are extremely tart. Most people prefer these dressed with a simple vinaigrette to release the flavours of the lettuces. - fruit salads - these are so versatile that they can be eaten for breakfast lunch dinner snack - virtually anytime at all. A fruit salad can be as simple as using a few different cans of canned fruit: such as a fruit cocktail or if time permits - a fresh fruit salad composed of seasonal fresh fruits can be made. - fish/seafood salads - For those of us who live inland - seafood salads are a real treat - but with all the canned & frozen varieties available this no longer needs to be the case.

My father in law grows a huge variety of greens at his summer cottage and his green salads are better than anything I ve had in a fancy restaurant. He starts with the basics - romaine lettuce green leaf lettuce and red leaf lettuce. He also uses oak leaf lettuce which is just a regular lettuce whose leaves are palmate (hand shaped) and therefore look a bit like oak leaves. These lettuces provide the bulk of the salad materials. He picks individual leaves off each plant so that each plant continues to grow through the summer. His lettuces can grow up to two feet tall (on the stalk) and he s still making salads from them.
