An unusual combination I came up with one night while preparing my lunch for the next day. Was scared to try it, but it turned out to be good! You could replace any ingredient to make it your own.

This is a great salad! It's easy to make fast and very filling. I substituted mushrooms for the broccoli (Mom loves mushrooms and I hate raw broccoli in salads) and added 1/2 cup of almonds to the second batch. Turned out real well. Read More

I think the ranch dressing just doesn't go with this salad. It's far too heavy. Use a balsamic vinegar dressing or a dressing made with olive oil light rice vinegar or regular rice vinegar a small amount of sugar or Splenda a quick dash of salt and pepper. This will allow the flavors of the actual salad to come through. Read More

I love this type of salad. For tose who don't like raw broccoli just blanche it in a couple cups of steaming water for about 15 seconds until it changes to a bright green color. Much tastier! Read More

Easy and delicious plus it was a great way to use up leftover grilled chicken! I subbed cherry tomatoes for the broccoli and added a couple of hard boiled eggs. I also used real bacon vs. bacon bits. This was great with warm rolls for a weeknight meal. Read More

This was sooooo good it quickly found it's way into the recipe boxes of other family members. I didn't have broccoli so added fresh mushrooms instead which made the broccoli-hating grand-daughter that was eating with us happy. This will be eaten alot in our household. Read More

Very quick and easy to make. I was looking for something on the lighter side so I didn't bother with the ranch or the chicken really. I used balsamic vinegar. It turned out great and I will make it again! Read More

My family thought this Spinach Salad was one of the best they had tasted. I left the chicken out as I used it as a side dish with chicken on the grill. Read More
