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?

The other suggestions here are great, but if you did want to stick to salads, I like doing a warm salad with griddled aubergine (eggplant) and/or large flat mushrooms cooked under the grill with olive oil and garlic. Yummy!

Oh hey, I got some lovely big flat mushrooms in the same box. That would be fabulous. And maybe I could try throwing some grilled squash in too, as there was some of that as well. Maybe the salad idea is salvageable after all! :D Thank you!
