Salad for supper? Maybe not

In my experience, there are three kinds of "meal salads."

First, there's "standard American," often tuna.  It's almost always accompanied by potato salad, which gives me gout, and cole slaw, which gives me . . . um, you don't want to know.

Then, there's "fancy."  (By way of example, Salade Nicoise is one type of what I'd call a "fancy" meal salad.)  The main problem with "fancy" meal-salads is that they're often super-sized.  I simply can't eat that much, and I'm not always going straight home, so I can't necessarily "doggy-bag" it.

Finally (?), there's middle eastern.  Not only are they super-sized, they're also often very high in fat, due to the ingredients used (such as techina), cooking method (deep-fried falafel, anyone?), etc.  And not only is it too much food for me, it's often just greasy enough (especially shwarma) to make me a tad queasy.

Looks like my gluten-free default dinner out, especially when I'm in a rush and can't wait for a cooked meal, may very well be a Larabar.
