My top 8 salads of Paris

When I was in Paris last week, writing about why Parisians are skinnier than Americans, I tried my best to continue my clean eating. (Bahahaaaaaaaa! Yeah right!) Well, at least I did try to order a salad at every meal. Mostly because I am always looking at ways to stay out of a veggie rut, and trying new combos of veggies in salads is a great way to do that. So that meant, at every meal in Paris, I busted out my huge camera to take a picture of my salad.

I got glares, I got stares, but I didn’t care.

And that’s how we have…

3. Butter lettuce, red tomatoes, shredded carrots, corn and parsley (This is what came out when I ordered the crudités plate. I thought it’d just be carrot sticks, celery, cucumber and broccoli with some hummus or something. Boy, was I deliciously mistaken!)

8. Mashed potatoes topped with paprika, cooked peas, roasted red potatoes and (in the glass shooter) bell peppers and onions in a tomato sauce (This was the “veggie plate” at one restaurant, the closest thing they had to salad. I can’t remember what the red thing on the left was.)
