Favorite Salad Recipes

This beautiful spring weather makes me want to sit on the patio every night and eat delicious salads for dinner!  Last year around this time I shared 3 of my favorite salad recipes.  These are all super filling salads overflowing with the most delicious ingredients.  If you are looking for a super easy dinner or a way to mix up your normal salad routine, check these out!



Italian Chopped Salad

Fresh greens topped with chopped pepperoni and salami, pancetta, Italian cheeses, hard boiled eggs, croutons, plenty of veggies, AND cheese tortellini!  This recipe also includes directions for a super easy Italian dressing that is the perfect light compliment to the salad.

Greek Steak Salad

This salad's toppings include olives, cherry tomatoes, sun-dried tomatoes, red onion, hard boiled eggs, pine nuts, and Feta cheese.  It is topped with steak that is marinated in the most delicious lemon, olive oil,  and vinegar mixture that I include in the recipe.  The best part?  It's served on garlic toast!  

Taco Salad with Lime-Marinated Steak and Jalapeño Ranch

If you love the creamy Jalapeno dressing at Chuy's, this salad is for you!  There are so many components  that make this salad amazing: steak in a tangy lime marinade; fresh corn, black bean, and onion salsa; avocado, peppers, and shredded cheese; and it's all served over a bed of blue corn chips!  The dressing (think Ranch with a kick!) adds just the right amount of cool, creaminess to the entire salad.
