#FatSnacks Friday Quick and Easy Yummy House Salad

Hey Cuties,

Happy #FatSnacks Friday, it has been a minute I know. This is our first one of 2018 and you might think its super lame but it isn’t. Summer bodies are made in the winter although I’m not actually working on my summer body.  I totally should but whateve; I just like food that tastes amazing in my mouth. This is also a great meal when you don’t know what to cook, don’t feel like cooking and or you are like me and your kid has late night sports during the work week.

The family and I have been hooked on salads, we change them up a little but it is our thing and we like them. Babe and LittleCuteLips love my salads so much they refuse to make them themselves. Now I don’t expect the 6-year-old to make her own but Babe has no excuse. According to them, I make them in a way that they can’t. They must think I’m stupid because it is only salad and no magic is included but I let them live and I make their salads. The Manchild doesn’t like his food to touch so he only eats the lettuce and doesn’t like salad dressing. He makes his own rabbit food.

Step 1: Lettuce – You can get any kind you want. I get a few different types, whatever I’m feeling or what is on sale and or in stock. Because I’m OCD I cut up everything, I firmly believe that everything tastes better when you cut it up into bite-size pieces.

Step #2: Mixed broccoli Slaw – This provides a nice crunch, it is broccoli, carrots and red cabbage shredded. It comes in a bag and you take a handful out and keep it moving.

Step #3: Broccoli – This is my favorite vegetable so it has to go in my salad. I cut off the bush part and toss the stems or you can freeze them and use them for another recipe.

Step #4: Tomatoes – LittleCuteLips and I love tomatoes but the boys not so much so I don’t put them in Babe’s salad. This particular time I purchase some already cut from the salad bar. Sometimes I just buy tomatoes and cut them up myself.

Step #5: Cheese – I love shredded cheddar cheese so that is what I go with. You can use any cheese of your choice but cheddar makes it better.

Step #6: Boiled Eggs – This one I make at home, buying it from the salad bar is expensive because the weight is heavy. LittleCuteLips doesn’t like the yoke in hers.

Step #7: Bacon – Bacon makes everything better, this time I used bacon bits. Other times I fry up bacon in the pan.

Step #8: Croutons – I love them and LittleCuteLips does too. Sometimes they are a little rough on the roof of your mouth.

Before I started making the salad I fried up some chicken tenders. If I want to take the lazy way out then I get a rotisserie chicken because it is already cooked and only cost $4.99

Step #9: Chicken – I sliced up the chicken tenders and put them on top. Adding chicken makes our salad filling and that is what we are always going for.

The salad also packs up nicely for lunch, I make them in mason jars. That makes it easy to transport.

    This salad looks so yummy. When I make my own salad it’s usually the same bland salad. Chicken, cheese, salad dressing, bacon bits, and salad. You have inspired me to go beyond that so I might try a few different things.

  20. EG III

    I love the many layers of this salad. While I’m no salad expert, I need much more than just lettuce so it has to be layered up!

  21. robin rue

    I have been trying so hard to eat more salads and this one is right up my alley! It’s simple to make and sounds delish!

  22. Alli Smith

    Yes to cutting salad into bite-sized pieces. I do the same thing. Your salad looks so good. I love the addition of the broccoli slaw.

  23. Amber Myers

    Heck yes! This is the kind of salad I enjoy. Salad with just lettuce and a few veggies are so boring. But this one is incredible!

  24. Jeanette

    That actually looks like a filling salad! I was have a problem just eating salad for lunch because I’m usually starving still after. I think I need to make one like this and that would feel me for the afternoon. It looks good.

  25. valmg @ Mom Knows It All

    I’m not much of a salad person at all. Hubby would really enjoy this one, he loves salad. Me, I’d be happy to the tomatoes, cheese and chicken.

  26. Adrienne

    I am currently on the hunt for new salad recipes, so this came right on time. Thanks for sharing!

    This looks like a delicious and filling salad. I like to put chicken on my salad for extra protein too.

    I love salads that are easy to do and the dressing is vinaigrette. I find this the healthiest and flavorful too despite its simplicity.

    I love salads because they’re so easy to put together, they’re filling and you won’t feel bad about eating them afterwards. It’s definitely something that I enjoy especially during lunch time. This one’s a must try! SO simple but really good!

  33. Aduke Schulist

    I love salads with eggs or another protein like chicken or tuna fish. I don’t really do bacon bits or croutons in mine.

  34. Sarah Bailey

    Now this is a delicious sounding salad. I love that it is easy to make as well, sometimes that’s all you want something quick and reasonably healthy to throw together.
