Salads have to be one of my favorite things to eat for lunch! They’re so easy and delicious!! Perfect for when you have your girlfriends over as well. My friend Amy (who I met at a blogging event) came over for lunch last week and asked what she could bring. I told her to bring the chicken and we’d throw a poppy seed salad together. So I searched through my fridge and pantry and we came up with a YUMMY salad. We enjoyed talking blogs, eating and playing with the kids. I love lunch dates!

Here’s what we threw in our salad… it ended up being really good! I love mixing fruit and veggies! Makes the perfect combo!

Grilled Chicken, cucumbers, carrots, corn, mandarin oranges, strawberries and apples




Mmm… I LOVE Briannas dressing! The strawberry flavor is another fave!

This poppy seed salad was so easy to throw together and tasted really good. You can do A LOT of different variations with this dressing…that’s what I love about it! That and the sweet taste…mmm!

So what’s your favorite salad recipes? I need some new recipes…

    You should try Indonesian style salad too. We have fruits and veggies both with peanut sauce, but different taste. Really nice :)

    One of my fav salads is mixed greens, dried cranberries, goat cheese, walnuts or almonds with Paul new mans balsamic dressing :)
    We actually had warm beef oriental salad tonight – mixed greens, crunchy noodles, bit of feta, cucumber, tomato, thin beef on the grill sliced thinly….delicious!

    It doesn’t feel right commenting about salads as I am eating a bowl of ice-cream. So, I love the give-back opportunity and I will check it out!
