I’m always looking for fun, protein-packed salads to make ahead and stash in the fridge. Although it’s not “formal” meal prep, this Caesar Chicken Salad is a great way to get ahead on a couple of lunches or light dinners for the week ahead.
This recipe isn’t exactly “new” to my site, but this fabulous Herby Lemon Vinaigrette really needs its own place to live. In the past, it’s been part of my Cold Tuna Salad with Green Beans but this dressing is so versatile, you might want to try it on different salads, maybe use it as a marinade and maybe even drizzle it over any simply cooked or grilled fish or chicken.
Easy Basil Pesto Vinaigrette has got to be the easiest salad dressing ever! As long as you have a little Pesto, that is! It’s such a quick cheat and will be fabulous on all kinds of greens and/or pasta salads. I used it the other day in my Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad with Apples & Feta and it was a beautiful marriage.
For someone who doesn’t frequent a lot of steakhouses, I seem to be building up quite a little collection of Steakhouse Recipes. (Click on the tag “Steakhouse” at the bottom of this post to see some of them.) Here’s another, a copycat version of Longhorn Steakhouse’s Longhorn Grilled Chicken Strawberry Salad.
I always have my eye out for recipes that might be just a little offbeat (hey, I’m not Betty Crocker) especially ones that can be adapted to my Minnesota kitchen. And while this is a regional specialty, Louisiana Sensation Salad Dressing is one of those recipes that’s right at home anywhere you might live!
