I have a feeling that my go-to salad is going to be a go-to salad for you, too. It’s loaded with greens and lean proteins with a punch of crunch with the cornbread croutons!
I’m, admittedly, not a salad person. Okay, that’s a lie. I actually love a good salad. But I feel like homemade salads are never as good as the salads you get at restaurants. Sure, most restaurant salads are loaded with cheese or fatty dressing — or both! But that’s besides the point!
My favorite salad is actually mostly healthy. It’s on the menu of nearly every neighborhood trendy American food restaurant so you know it’s gotta be good. In fact, I order this salad almost every time I see it on the menu. I mean… cornbread croutons?! GIMME ‘EM ALL.
What I really love about this salad is that you can completely customize it to your liking or based on what you’ve got in your kitchen. No dried cranberries, no problem. Your avocado isn’t quite ripe yet? Don’t worry ’bout it.
And so now I’m here today sharing the recipe with you all. It’s my go-to salad and is a regular when I’m meal planning. I have a feeling it’ll be a go-to salad for you, too!
When you’re done, maybe treat yourself to some chocolate chip blondies 😉 You just ate a salad by choice… you deserve it!
The ingredients listed below are enough for two entree size salads. You can easily double or even triple the ingredients to make lunches for the week. If you decide to prepare ahead, hold off on adding the dressing until you’re ready to serve! Team no soggy lettuce.
Be sure to tag me on instagram if you make one of my recipes! I love love love to hear from you!
