Yes, I realize I’m posting this on Sunday. The weekend got away from me, what can I say?

Anyhoo. I just wanted to share one of our family’s favorite salad recipes. We made it last night. Hence, the “Salad Saturday” title. I try to do a “salad dinner” every week. I’m not always consistent, but I try. It’s easy, healthy, and helps my kids think outside the box as far as dinner options go.

And this recipe – well, I’ll put it this way. When I tell my ten-year-old I’m making it, she squeals. Oh, and you don’t want to watch her at the dinner table that night. It’s like a mother lion over fresh prey. I’m not kidding.

Okay, enough small talk. Here’s the recipe. I think you’ll love it.

Mixed greens (or Romaine lettuce works well)
Fresh strawberries (sliced)
Mandarin oranges (canned, drained)
Candied pecans
Feta cheese
Grilled chicken (you can make it fresh, or Tyson grilled in the frozen food section is good)
Ken’s Light Raspberry Vinaigrette Dressing (you have to use this brand – it’s the best)

Mix all these things together and chow down. Seriously, you’ll be licking the bowl.

When I have extra Weight Watchers points to spare, I’ll go to Breadsmith and get some French Peasant or Sourdough bread to eat with it. That way you’ll have something to sop up the extra dressing with. (Did I really just use the word “sop”?)
