What's On Your Salad #1

It's been a fun and creative week with salad's!

Huge THANK YOU to all that showed support when I presented the idea last week.

Lins was more than excited to participate, as well as Kim, Tyah, and Ashlyn! Of course, Laura, one of my bloggy besties, a nutrition guru, jumped on it too! So many others dropped comments here and there telling how they loved the idea and were looking forward to this weeks post. Lindsay and Esther tweeted with me during the week about their support and salad inspirations. Obvs, I was feelin' the love (so grateful) and having fun with this! Hope the rest of you are too!

Why #whatsonyoursalad ???


People for one, it's accountability. When we are working together towards the same goal of healthy eating we can find encouragement, motivation and accountability through each other...a recipe for success.

Secondly, salads are boring & repetitive, if our creations are limited. Salads are powerful and nutritious for our systems, they can be loaded high in fiber with veggies or high in protein with quinoa, meats or eggs, plus all varieties of lettuce contain crazy amounts of water...good hydration, not vibrations, good hydrations.

Thirdly, bloggy friends! How fun is it to blog? Fun. but when you start to network and connect with other bloggers....blogging becomes FUN, bold//caps//turn up the volume type fun.

Here's what I learned....I can eat/enjoy red onions. Mix iceberg with spinach to stretch out a bag of spinach. Orange Juice can be part of salad dressing. Combining salad dressings is a good way to change it up. Fruits on salads are just as yummy and nutritious as any vegetable. Leftovers aren't just for soups. Sunflower seeds help me miss bacon less. And, I'm less messy eating from a bowl than a plate.

My week of salads.

whats on your salad, whatsonyoursalad, salad creations, salad toppings


I posted almost daily on Twitter and just uploaded them to Instagram.
I loved the chicken and craisin salad with walnuts, mixing honey mustard with raspberry vinaigrette for the dressing was super yummy (hit the sweet tooth) and easy to carry to work. Another time, I used left over London Broil from a weeknight dinner and sprinkled Swiss cheese and edamames, added some well needed protein to that days lunch. The Cafe chef salad had some protein too with eggs and seeds.


And for my favorite salad with quick homemade dressing recipe....

Citrus Salad Dressing recipe, salad dressing recipe, citrus dressing, whats on your salad
Gather up handfuls of baby spring lettuce, mandarin oranges, and cooked but chilled asparagus twigs add red onion. The dressing for this was found here, it was the perfect complement for this salad, sweet but tangy.

Citrus Dressing 

1/2 c. mayo (could omit by increasing next item)
1/4 c. plain yogurt
1/3 c. orange juice
1/8 tsp. lemon-pepper
mix it all together, chill first if desired!



I will keep posting #whatsonyoursalad over the next few weeks :) It's been lots of fun! There are so many other salads I'm excited to try and share. Let's keep this going?!

Melissa said...

Great idea!!! I'll have to join in on this next week :)

Kristine -Heart Shaped Sweat said...

Yay! I'm sure you have some great ideas to share!

Kristine -Heart Shaped Sweat said...

Thanks for the sweet comment! I'll stop by your blog ASAP :)

Rekita Nicole said...

Jen said...

Wow these all look amazing! I need to get stuff to make salads now haha. :)

Kristine -Heart Shaped Sweat said...

Fine with me! You can always hook up with the hashtag too!
I'm excited to hop around and see other people's creations!

Kristine -Heart Shaped Sweat said...

Do it now, haha!

Jen said...

What a fun idea! I love it! Sunflower seeds on a salad are great! I haven't tried any yet, but I've been reading a lot about sprinkling chia seeds (yes like the pet) on your salad. From what I understand its a great source of Omega-3 (which very few of us get enough of) ANYHOW, I've been trying to start making my own salad dressings because so much of the packaged stuff is so processed and has high fructose corn syrup in it (which we've also cut out of our diets) but honestly I haven't really found a great recipe that I love. SO, if you end up with any great salad dressings for your fab salads will you keep posting those too?

Jen said...

AND this is completely unrelated but I've been meaning to tell you- THANK YOU! Your baby oil tip in the shower for itching...AMAZING. You have changed my life. Although I will say I feel like I should buy stock in that stuff now...

Kathy Moody said...

Hi! I love your awesome blog! Stopping by and following from A Lovely Blog Hop. I will have to get busy and get a post for What's on Your Salad. That is right up my alley. :)

Have a great weekend.

Kathy @ lifeonlakeshoredrive.com

Kristine -Heart Shaped Sweat said...

I've heard good things about chia seeds too! I should try that this week on my salads, good tip :) I know what you mean about salad dressings...I've kind of had the mindset..."oh well, salad is healthy enough, don't worry about the dressing" but then I read the nutrition label and get grossed out! I love your idea to keep the dressing recipe's going!

Kristine -Heart Shaped Sweat said...

Yay! Glad it's working for you! But, watch out...you'll get hooked on it!
Like eggs and milk, it's always on the grocery list ;)

Kristine -Heart Shaped Sweat said...

Glad you found me and pointed me your way! Kathy your blog is stock full of amazing tips...makes me want to change out of pajama's and head to the nearest craft store :)
I'd love for you share salad creations with us next week! It's been inspiring and motivating to see others salads of the week. I'm looking forward to next weeks get together! See you there!

CaramelRell said...

I wished I would've found your blog sooner, I would have posted the salad I had for lunch today. They all look delicious. I'm following via A Lovely Blog Hop!
