A Week of Salads

My fiance (god that word bugs me lol) works out of town on the oil rigs during the week, for the most part. This week and next, he is here. Out on the rigs, he eats a LOT of convenience store food, so he has been inhaling veggies right and left since he got back (for a roughneck, he has a great palate, having worked in places like Jackie's Bistro in Evanston IL and Ruth's Chris in Chicago). I told him that this week for dinner, we would have salads every night to get some vegetables in his belly. He is very excited. I need some help - I do love nuts, cheeses, and dried fruit in salad, but it's usually just pine nuts and feta. What do you do for a main course salad?
