If you have leftover salad, but not enough to go around, look in your pantry. Any of these items can be added to the salad:
You can make your own lower-calorie croutons by toasting bread in the toaster and cutting it up into cubes. Do not toast it until it's hard and dry, it is really good when still soft in the middle. These are especially good when made with rye or Italian bread. No need to season because your salad dressing has seasoning in it. This is a good way to use up the ends of the bread.

Baby food? They still make tapioca baby food? Blech! I am so surprised at what is "ok" to feed babies these days! I nanny for a 16 month old and when she finally started eating, her mom wanted me to feed her Apricot Dessert, at 9 months! Needless to say, I left that container in the bag!
Hmmm, this struck a nerve! I know some people that EAT baby food, to this day! Ewwww! (06/14/2007)
