“Now, now, don’t be hatin’ on my salad”, my bestie told me. As I took a closer look that colorful, berry stuffed, pecan covered salad started to look a little tasty. And then I took a bite… where has this salad been all my life? Y’all, I can’t even explain how delicious it was. I can now admit, at 28 years old, this salad hatin’ mama has been converted!
Let me share with you a couple of my favorites.
I call this the Loaded Berrilicious Salad.
Spinach Leaves, stems removed… I can’t stand those!
4 strawberries washed and diced
1/4 cup washed blueberries
1/4 shredded mozzarella cheese
2 sliced microwaved turkey bacon, crumbled.
I want my salad loaded! Like a little something yummy with every spinach leaf. You get me, don’t you?
Now, lets talk dressing. Homemade is THE only way! I’m going to share a few of my favorites in another post. But for the time being, I’m loving a simple balsamic vinegar, only 15 calories… you can’t beat that. I love the vinegar flavor. The picture below is the kind I’ve been using. Acutally, I can give ole STUARTO’s the credit for my new salad addicition. Lets just say its that good! I can’t wait to taste their other flavors, too. I’ve also been using the juice from a lemon with salt and pepper.
I call this salad the Minty Candy.. what? It looks like candy!
seeds from 1 pomegranate
a few mint leaves
drizzle of the juice from the orange
salt and pepper
Alright, y’all! What your favorite salad recipe? What do you like to top your salad green with? Any favorite dressing recipes?
