What salad goes with Lasagna

I am going to a friends this weekend and bringing the salad.

Typically I make greek salad or mandarin/almond one, but what typically goes with lasagna? I hate caesar so that's out. I have recipe for a proscuitto and carmalized pear one, but that seems a bit decadent since lasagna is kind of a rich dish anyhow.

Whatta ya think just garden?

tomato, basil, and motzerella? LOL

Simple romaine with tomatoes, black olives, and feta with an italian dressing/red wine and vinegar would go nicely! Tossing in almond slivers and craisins adds some nice texture and flavor!

We always have that caprese salad with italian. The restaurant serves it, why not?

If you'll feel OD'd on cheese and tomato, why not a regular salad chock full of veggies? My favorite is romaine, broccoli, green olives, artichoke hearts, red peppers, cucumbers...just a ton of veggies to balance out all the cheese and carbs.

What about a regular garden salad?? You can jazz it up with some colored bell peppers, cheese cubes, carrots, corn, beans, bacon, hard boiled eggs, etc. I've also had a casear with 1/2 cherry tomatoes and cheese tortellini thrown on at the end with the dressing!

Good luck!!

I always make a simple garden salad, romaine, tomatoes, cucumber, green onion, and whatever else tickles your fancy, with olive oil and red wine vinegar, and salt and pepper. Simple but Scrumptious!!!!!!!!!!!!
