Salad Days - How Green Was My Salad?

Green is one of my favourite colours and I fancied a green salad. I went with what I had to hand; lettuce, (white) cabbage, cucumber, green pepper, avocado, celery, green apple, pear, grapes.  I could have thrown on some herbs such as basil and parsley, and would have included watercress or cornsalad (my favourite) if I'd had some. I didn't plan ahead! If I had, I might have looked for some Sage Derby, to add a spot of green cheese! Even so, the range of tastes and textures were interesting and satisfying. I'm debating a salad plate of other colours, but there isn't as much variety as there is from green ingredients. If you feel inspired to play too, I'd love to see your pictures!
