Sometimes I get stuck in a salad rut. I have my favorites (I’m talking to you Newmans’ light balsamic, feta cheese and spinach) that I often depend on and forget to switch things up. This week, though, I tried to mix things up enough to keep our taste buds interested, but without having to buy a ton of extra ingredients. I created salads that even satisfied the man of the house, and to me, that’s success!
Buffalo Chicken Salad
Chopped romaine, shredded carrots, shredded sharp white cheddar, cucumbers, avocado, red onion with grilled chicken and buffalo ranch (mix ranch dressing and Texas Pete’s WING sauce)
A mixture of baby spinach and chopped romaine, red onion, diced grape tomatoes, cucumbers, feta, chopped fresh parsley and grilled salmon with Newman’s Own Light Balsamic vinaigrette
Spicy Shrimp Salad
Chopped romaine, black beans, diced grape tomatoes, red onion, avocado, feta, chopped fresh cilantro and spicy grilled shrimp served with buffalo ranch. Add diced pickled jalapenos for even more kick!
Chicken Caesar Salad
Chopped romaine, diced grape tomatoes and shredded carrots tossed in Newmans’ Caesar dressing, topped with grilled chicken and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese.
Chopped romaine, diced red onion, sauteed onions and bell peppers, Mexi corn (from the can, rinsed), topped with grilled sirloin, spicy guacamole, sour cream, salsa and cilantro.
I’m always looking for new ideas…
What is your favorite salad combo?
