I can't get around to all my bright ideas, either, blessed. We are trying to eat more salads, and one problem is getting that initial work done ahead of time so you do get some variety. HRH has started enjoying the kale salads that are ready-made in bags in the groceries these days - some have dried cranberry or pumpkin seed, shredded carrot and other shredded veggies. Even WMart carries them - the brand they have is Ready Pac.
When we had company recently I "stole" one of his bags and just barely tossed it with a head of lettuce for a very pretty (contrasted light greens against dark), large salad quick, that was interesting and healthy, but not so heavy on the peppery taste. (He likes that much kale, but most people would wonder where the lettuce was! ) Of course, you're paying for the packaging, like the little bags of dressing most have inside. Smarter to blend it yourself, but with the convenience, he will grab some when I least expect him to, instead of something less healthy.
I continue to be impressed with how much better people respond to healthy foods if there is color contrast. The response changes from "um... ... I don't think I like that", to "how pretty", and I find they give the dish a chance, whether grains or salads or stir-fry, etc.
