I'm not really a salad girl. I've never been one to order up a big salad as my dinner. I've even been known to order a taco salad... without the lettuce. Yes, I do realize that lettuce is the main component of a salad... but have you had those taco bowls?? I mean, I would eat cereal out of those things.
But back to the subject at hand... salad. I have recently realized that it is really just iceberg lettuce that I don't like... and I'm totally okay with spinach and spring mixes. So I'm trying some new stuff out... I'm in Spring Salad Training, if you will. Not because I want to be super healthy or anything, but because I've actually found a few that I enjoy. Trust me... if you saw the salads that I put together... they would not be called salads... so not healthy.
Here is my most recent favorite... a simple blue cheese salad. Yum.
I start with the essentials... baby spring mix, a tomato, a sweet yellow onion, a cucumber, blue cheese crumbles, and Litehouse Chunky Blue Cheese dressing.
If I wanted to be super healthy I would stop here. You know, just the veggies and a sprinkle of blue cheese crumbles.
Yeah right. My salad is not complete until I pour on the dressing...
On extra special days, I will add a left over Chick-fil-a chicken strip. Now that makes a good salad.
What about you? Do you have any salad favorites? Anything I should try for Spring Salad Training?
