The other night was warm when Mr. G.Q. requested salad for supper. I frequently order salad when I go out for lunch but somehow I find making salads at home to be somewhat challenging. I decided to carry on and make His and Her Salads for Supper. I picked up a Costco cooked rotisserie chicken (huge, delicious and economical), and found every thing else in the frig.
My hubby likes hard-boiled eggs and I don’t. I love avocados and he does not. Lastly, he likes bacon but not in a salad.
Ingredients: (Quantities are for one salad)
-1/4 medium sized head of iceberg lettuce (torn into bite-sized pieces)
-6-7 cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
-1 hard-boiled egg, chopped into small pieces
-I/2 ripe avocado, diced into 1/2 inch pieces
-2 T shredded cheddar cheese
-1 1/2 T blue cheese crumbles
-1 cup rotisserie chicken, cut into bite-sized pieces
-2 pieces of center cut bacon, fried until almost crisp, drained on a paper towel, and cut into bite-sized pieces
Arrange the lettuce on a dinner plate.
Arrange all the ingredients you prefer in rows.
Prepare any dressing and serve in a gravy boat or glass carafe. We usually have Good Seasons Italian dressing made from the dry mix, combined with red wine vinegar and olive oil.
As you can see from the photos, the salads are appetizing and delicious. It’s actually a fun thing to make for friends as everyone can personalize their meal. You could also make these salads early on the day and then put them in the refrigerator covered in plastic wrap.
This is a surprisingly fun meal to make and one that cleans out lots of items from the refrigerator. Try one tonight. Let me know in the comments below what items do you enjoy when having a home-made salad. Thanks and happy salad eating 🌶🥒🥗!
