I'll just have salad thanks...

Lately I'm trying to focus on eating healthy, especially now that there's more options for fruits and veggies. Lately when I go visit my brother for supper we have hugeass salads for supper. I've gotten into the whole thing...turns out I like salads a LOT-trick is making them filling enough. I also just found out our city has a Good Food Box program that lets you get fruits and veggies from local sustainable farmers/sources every 2 weeks. VERY cool...we're setting up a pickup here where I work and so I'm looking at ways to eat more veggeis...cuz it turns out I *like* them and will have more of them very soon!
I put this salad together the other day for lunch and it was delicious!

2 c spinach
~1/2 c ea diced red pepper, cucumbers & cauliflower
1/8 c sunflower seeds
1/4 c grated mozza cheese
1 can drained tuna
2 oz low fat greek salad dressing.

Mixed it all up and it was amazing...enough so that I'm still thinking about it days later. I'm going to do this at least once a week and vary up the veggies and nuts in it...whatever I have around -maybe have diced chicken or some hard boiled eggs in it to change up the protein part a bit. Kept me full until supper and was delicious...any ideas from the world about your favourite salad toppings?
