Protein Filled Salad

When I’m not frequenting Chop’t or Just Salad, I try to make comparable salads at home.  This one is healthy, filling, and delicious.

Here’s my favorite combination:

  • Spring Lettuce Mix
  • Grilled Chicken
  • Turkey Bacon
  • Egg Whites
  • Red Pepper
  • Red Onion
  • Cucumber
  • Parmesan Cheese
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Fig Balsamic Vinegar
  • Garlic Olive Oil

I know, the last 2 ingredients are odd and scarce.  But, I was recently in Rhinebeck NY and stumbled upon a store designated to oil and vinegar.  Pure Mountain Olive Oil had a huge assortment of unique olive oils and balsamic vinegars.  For example, Garlic Truffle Oil, Fig Vinegar, Chipotle Oil, Persian Lime Olive Oil, and Chocolate Dark Balsamic Vinegar.  You can try the oils and vinegars in any combination.  My favorite happened to be the Fig Balsamic and Garlic Olive Oil.  PS – I walked out of that store with $60 worth of oil and vinegar.

Hint: When mixing oil and vinegar for dressing, use 2 parts oil and one part vinegar
