Don’t you just love Italian food?! I’ve mentioned before that when my husband and I were dating we went out to dinner…A LOT. We had a favorite Italian restaurant we went to all the time mostly because of the salad and bread sticks. There were many a meal where I would get full on the salad before dinner even got to the table and I’d usually end up taking most of the actual dinner home. When I was thinking of ways I could mix our dinners at home up a bit that tasty salad came to mind.
I knew I wanted to make my favorite salad at home but I needed to add more protein to make it a full meal and, and this was the important part, I wanted it to be quick and easy. We’ve had a lot going on lately and by the time dinner time rolls around the last thing I want to do is spend an hour in the kitchen.
So when I was at Walmart doing our weekly grocery shopping I was excited when I found Tyson® Grilled & Ready Chicken Strips in the freezer section. They were perfect for my salad since all I had to do was heat them up in the microwave; no thawing or cooking required. I also picked up a bottle of my favorite dressing, Wishbone® Italian, and a few other ingredients (as well as a week full of other meals) and was ready to make my salad.
I love how easy this salad is to make and how good it tastes. It took me about five minutes to throw everything together and it was a huge hit with the whole family. My boys especially loved the chicken and black olives. I loved how much it tasted like that famous salad and how filling it was. We even had enough leftover that I was able to have salad for lunch the next few days. If you’re looking for a tasty, healthy dinner salad that is easy to make and that everyone will eat, give this salad a try!
