>what makes a good salad?
Vegetables, sometimes fruit, meats and cheese as well.

>How do I tell what vegetables and dressing to combine?
Most combinations will work fairly well, just experiment and find out what you like.

>any good dressing recipes?
I usually just make vinaigrettes with oil, vinegar, sometimes some honey, sometimes mustard, salt pepper, sometimes minced garlic or chopped fresh herbs. You can use different oils, vinegars, mustards, herbs etc. to get different flavor combinations. Again, experiment and see what you prefer. Or just use google.

Salad should be simple. Start off with a few tasty greens for example arugula-spinach-chard. Dress it (EV olive and balsamic vinegar never goes wrong) and serve with a chicken breast or whatever you like. Again, simplicity is all, too much and you won't appreciate the greens at all.

Once your comfortable in what you like add other things you like: root vegetables, nuts, cheeses, etc. Don't fall for the Caesar salad conception of things, you don't need piles of dressing, croutons and shit, and lettuce is to salad as thin sliced white is to bread.

buy a salad spinner if you haven't already

my salad consumption went right up after i bought a salad spinner

my fave dressing is simple: apple cider vinegar, olive oil (or whatever i have), white miso, whole grain mustard, and just a hint of honey

spend a few $$ on NICE cheese (not the shit from the milk aisle) blue is nice, or feta.. they're all good

nuts are also nice.. pine nuts, pecans, walnuts, coconut

fennel is great .. it taste like licorice/celery

grape tomatos

boiled egg - buy one of those cheap wire egg slicer things they work great

bacon fried hard

avocado
