Cowboy Up Salad

[et_pb_section bb_built=”1″ admin_label=”section”][et_pb_row admin_label=”row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_blurb admin_label=”Blurb” title=”The Best Chicken Salad Recipe”]

Coming from a meat and potatoes kind of family, my mother fought a constant battle for years to get us kids to eat our freaking vegetables. While I love them now, (thank you mama) it wasn’t always the case. Now that I’m older and moved out like a big kid now, I’ll occasionally find myself falling into the same rut.

Why have a salad when I can have pizza, right?

My mom came to the rescue once again with this beauty and it’s meat & potato only eaters, cowboy approved! Time to saddle up, and get this salad on the table! In country spirit, turn up “Where The Green Grass Grows” by Tim Mcgraw and let’s get right into it!

  • 2-3 chicken breast, cooked and diced

  • 1 cup of cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 cup of sweet corn
  • 4 cups of romaine lettuce, chopped

For the dressing: In a jar or other sealed container, combine all ingredients and shake until well blended. Alternatively, you could put all the ingredients into a blender and blend it together (..but who wants to wash a blender, am I right?)

If you’re aiming for presentation: In a large bowl, toss in all the romaine lettuce. Then add all the other ingredients being sure to give each ingredient it’s own little section of the bowl so that they touch but hardly overlap. With its stark contrasting greens, reds, and yellows you can bet your family or friends will have their socks knocked off with a glimpse of this salad. It’s B-E-A-U-tiful!

Toss salad together with the dressing at the table when you’re ready to eat.

If you don’t give a damn: (Hey, no judgments here -I get you!) In a large bowl add all ingredients and toss together with the dressing.

This salad will keep for a week, but good luck keeping it uneaten for that  long!

So there we have it! A filling, delicious ‘cowboy’ approved salad that will leave you wanting more!

Health & Happiness,
