Whether you have been reading my blog for a while or if you are new, you must know that if I am going to eat a salad it better be one heck of a Sexy Salad! None of this plain veggie business! I always have to jazz it up a bit. I thought I would give you some of my favorite simple salad recipes to give you all a little inspiration ’cause let’s face it, eating a salad everyday can get boring, but not any more!
Ok, first you gotta meal prep in order to have some yummy options. Set some time on Sunday to prep, about an hour is totally fine. I like to mix it up a bit and have chicken some days, beef some days, and even a veggie burger. So here is a list of three simple salads that you can make in no time!
1. Carne Asada Salad: So, everyone is enjoying the BBQ and you want to as well, what better way to spice up a salad then to add strips of carne asada (or steak), avocado, salsa, fresh tomatoes and whatever else suits your fancy.
2. BBQ Chicken and Sweet Potato Salad: This is one of those recipes that you want to prep on Sunday. Get your crock pot ready for some yummy BBQ Chicken that is perfect on a bead of lettuce, corn, and baked sweet potatoes (which you could also prep in the crock pot). I used this recipe for the BBQ Chicken.
3. Veggie Burger Salad: MY ALL TIME FAVE!!! Now you could use a homemade veggie burger (my favorite) or you could buy the ones at Costco like I do because I love them!!! I love to break the burger up into pieces and put it on a big bed of mixed greens, avocado, grilled zucchini, and drizzle it with a little BBQ sauce (a little won’t kill ya). I also have made homemade sweet potato fries (new recipe coming up next week) and put them in there as well.
I have a lot more to come..this is only the beginning!
