Adding Extra Protein to Your Salads

I've been eating more salads since it's been warmer here in NY. Sometimes I just am extra hungry and want an extra hit of protein in my salads. Here are some ideas for raw foods and cooked foods to add to salads for extra protein.

Raw Foods

Nut pate
Flax crackers/flax seeds
Raw hummus
Sprouted beans/seeds
Raw nut butters (nut butter dressing)
sunflower or pumpkin or other seeds

Cooked Foods

Fish - salmon or sardines or other low toxin fish
Cooked beans (marinate them for extra flavor)
Re-fried beans/(taco salad add salsa/guacamole/refied beans and corn or raw or regular corn chips)
Also all those listed in the raw section above
