A New Favorite Salad!!…

Posted Nov 06 2013 6:45am

Hey there!  Happy Wednesday to you!  Hump Day!  I have to say that.  Every time I think it’s Wednesday, I think of the Geico commercial with the camel yelling hump day!  Too funny!  Anyway, we have reached the middle of the week and I am happy about that.  I always look forward to the weekend so I can relax and catch up on my dvr and just get things done that I need to.  We are almost there!

So over the weekend, I was browsing the salad mix and I had a coupon and couldn’t figure out which salad I wanted to purchase.  It was going to cost me 50 cents after the sale price and coupon.  So Melissa grabbed one and handed it to me.  Little did I know that this was going to turn out to be my new favorite salad!  I am so thankful she grabbed it!

The mix is Dole Perfect Harvest Salad Kit .  This salad contains field greens, dried cranberries, almond blends and Dole’s own Apple Cider Dijon Vinaigrette!

I love all of the ingredients in this salad!  I have recently become a big fan of cranberries and nuts in my salad.  I like the different textures and the nutritional value that it brings to the salad.  The dressing on this salad was phenomenal!  I wish Dole sold their salad dressings to buy!  This one was so good!  I think at some point, I might try my hand at making it from scratch!  It’s so good. 

This salad reminds me a lot of the Autumn Salad that Saladworks has right now.  I tried that a few weeks ago and it was REALLY good.  The pumpkin dressing made it even better!  GR!  Now I want a salad!!

In addition to our salad, Mike made us turkey burgers.  He added a packet of Wishbone Italian Dressing to the turkey and grilled it on our griddler.

I love turkey burgers but I’ve been debating to add some beef to my diet.  Every time I say I’m going to try it, I chicken out.  I guess it’s because I’ve gone over a year without eating any beef.  I have to say that I feel healthier.  I never really ate beef all that much.  I would have ground beef once in a blue moon and now I don’t eat it at all.  I guess it’s all personal preference and at some point I will make a decision.  Until then, I will stick with my trustful turkey burgers.

What is your favorite kind of salad?  What is a must-have in your salad?  What kind of burgers do you like?

Alright, well have a great Wednesday!
