Hmmm... this community is kind of quiet, but maybe enough people are paying attention that you can still give me some good advice. I keep getting salad mix in my boxes, and I am so tired of salad.... With the weather changing I find myself seeking out more comfort foods and cold salad just doesn't appeal so much anymore.

I've done the warm goat cheese idea (extremely delicious, but goat cheese is so expensive here!) and tried throwing in things like chicken and almonds, but I feel like I'm out of ideas. Can anyone suggest something interesting to do with salad mix? Maybe something to make it feel a little more substantial?

When you say "salad mix", do you mean a bag of stuff like rocket and mustard and things? I rip it up into small pieces and throw it into hot spicy tomatoey things, and it adds some good flavour. Personally I can't stand things like rocket in salads, so all my salad mix goes into the pot!

Yeah, it's a mix of all sorts of random stuff. Most of it I can't identify. I searched the distributor's website to see if they had a better description of what's in it, but all it really said was "While arugula, chervil, endive, and lettuce are the classic mesclun ingredients, anything goes nowadays."

I didn't actually like it much as salad frankly, so I think I'll take your suggestions to heart. I like the idea of putting it in tomatoey things. I sadly can't eat spicy food much, but I like the idea of a tomato sauce with greens in it. Yum. Thanks! :)
