From there on, anything goes. Some suggestions: small cubes of cheese (feta, gruyère, cheddar), bacon or ham, cooked potatoes, etc.

Same thing for French dressing, you can use the classic one, or change the oil (sesame, walnut, ...), vinegar (balsamic, cider, maple, lime juice...), or add other tasty things: teaspoon of soya sauce, dash of Tabasco,... Even all of these!
