I have been on a bit of a salad kick lately, wanting to make and eat these elaborate salads for my boyfriend and I to eat for lunch on the weekends. To me they’re fun to make…chopping up different veggies and fruits to put in it and coming up with different combinations of ingredients to put together! It allows me to exercise my creativity!
And they always look so pretty! This is the one I made for us this past weekend.
This one was fun, and yummy! We both loved it!
Making salads is a great way to exercise your creativity while being healthy. There are so many different combinations you can experiment with. Just grab some veggies, fruits, nuts, meat and cheese (if you’re not lactose-intolerant like me) and have fun!
And if anyone is interested in this last one I came up with, here are the ingredients!
- 1/2 cup Raspberries
- 1/4 cup Avocado Oil
- 1/4 cup Balsamic Vinegar
- ~Mix all ingredients together in a blender~
- 8 oz Chicken Breast
- 2 Slices Bacon
- 2 cups Spinach
- 2 Tbsp Sliced Almonds
- 1/4 cup Grape Tomatoes cut in quarters
- 1/2 Green Apple diced
- 1/2 Avocado
- 2 Tbsp Raspberry Vinaigrette
Cook the bacon in a frying pan until done. Remove from pan.
Season the chicken breast however you want (I only sprinkled a little bit of salt, pepper and Mrs. Dash on mine) and cook in frying pan for about 5 minutes each side, or until there is no pink left.
When it is finished, slice the chicken into bite-sized pieces.
In a large bowl, combine spinach, tomatoes, apples, almonds, chicken and vinaigrette.
Toss until everything is mixed well and coated with the dressing.
Top with sliced avocado and serve!
