Strawberry Salad

It is no secret that I am trying to eat healthier. It is hard when you just want something easy and sometimes sweet. This salad combines both of those. Of course I still enjoy my chocolate, but salads are a way for me to stay aligned with my health goals.

Generally I don't eat strawberries on their own unless they are covered in chocolate. But they are so pretty and recently were on sale. I bought so many that I didn't know what to do with them.

Enter Strawberry Salad.
I added blue cheese to the mix. I like the sharp and sweet flavors. They meld in just the right way.



Ingredients:

Romaine lettuce, chopped
Sliced strawberries
Turkey cubes/slices
Crumbled blue cheese
Blue cheese dressing
Chopped pecans

Directions:

Clean and chop your strawberries and lettuce. Place lettuce in bowl, followed by strawberries. Add turkey, blue cheese, and pecans.

Top with blue cheese dressing and serve and enjoy immediately!


I think chicken would also be good and you could switch out the turkey. If you have sliced almonds those could also be good if you don't like pecans. Pecans are my favorite though...#newmexicopride


Happy Wednesday!

  1. I love strawberry salads whenever I see them on a menu, but I never make them at home-- mainly because it seems to be impossible to find good ones at the grocery store, but this looks so good!

  2. I love a good strawberry salad! You should try it with Brianna's vinaigrette that has a strawberry on the bottle. Deliciousness. :)
