There are many common salad ingredients which can be used in combinations for: - green salads - mostly made with a type of lettuce as a base ingredient - added items could be raw vegetables fruits nuts cooked meats eggs cheeses etc. These are usually topped with a dressing that is either mayonnaise based (dressing) or oil-based (vinaigrette) - vegetable salads - sometimes made with just raw vegetables but more often with blanched vegetables (to soften them up a bit) fruit (other than dried) is rarely added but nuts & cheeses are common. A sauce or dressing can be used for flavour and to bind the ingredients together. - mixed green salads - This type of salad is usually composed of a variety of lettuces (of which there are many).

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.
