Ok, yep, it's a salad. For dinner. Kids eat salad for dinner, right?! Well, they should. And I'm tricking you into thinking mine do by including one of their beaming faces in this picture....but in reality, they ate grilled cheese and toasted banana peanut butter sandwiches. But us adults had the good stuff pictured. It's one of my 3 "meal" salads I tend to use over and over. This one's got more of the tex-mex flavor, I suppose. I forgot to include canned or fresh corn and chili powder in the picture. The chili powder is for sprinkling on the chicken.
Signature Salad #1 (#2 and #3 are sure to follow at some point in future blog posts)
What you need:
grape tomatoes, halved or whole
diced peppers, yellow, green or red will do
canned or frozen/fresh corn
canned or grilled chicken breast (for canned, the Costco brand is the only one priced reasonably)
shredded mexican blend cheese
crunched up tortilla chips
Lighthouse Organic Caesar dressing (Can be very expensive, normally $5 a bottle. But I stock up when Freddy's regularly puts them on sale for $2.50. I can't go back to any other kind. I am abnormally obsessed.)
How you make it:
Do I really need to explain how to make a salad? Just throw everything in the picture together, MINUS the small child's head, of course. I can't be responsible for any cannibalism. Ew, that's gross and weird. But this salad's da bomb, yo. And if you have kids, maybe you'll be better than me at insisting they eat more salad.
