Wednesday is salad night in our house. Chris plays basketball on Wednesday nights, so we need something light and quick.
Tonight was chicken bacon ranch salad. I took the easiest route I could on this one. Bagged salad, precooked chicken strips. I did cook the bacon myself rather than use the microwave kind.
You need romaine lettuce, cut up chicken breast, crumbled bacon, chopped tomatoes, red onion, ranch dressing and cheddar crumbles. I like crunch too, so I added some crushed tortilla chips to the top.
Add the lettuce, chicken, 1/2 the bacon, onion and tomato. Add the dressing and toss. Top with cheese crumbles and remaining bacon. That’s it. I think it was ready in less than 10 minutes. Love salads too, because you can determine your own amounts of ingredients.
Next time, I will share my favorite taco salad. My friend Carissa posted her version today and now I want taco salad! I haven’t made it in a while, so I think we’re due for it to make the menu plan next week.
Menu Plan this week (I’m getting better about planning and sticking to it, which means less eating out-yay!(
1. Chili Lime drumsticks, roasted corn and veggies
2. Mustard skirt steak
3. Chicken Bacon Ranch Salad
4. Cheez-It Chicken (new recipe. I’m so intrigued by cheeze-its on chicken, I have to try it!)
