Louisiana Sensation Salad Dressing

Louisiana Sensation Salad Dressing

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. I figure if I can make something here, with grocery stores that are full of ingredients catering to our Midwestern sensibility (although they’re getting better) then you can probably make it wherever you are. I hope, anyway! And while this regional specialty, Louisiana Sensation Salad Dressing is a little off-beat, you shouldn’t have any issues with finding these ingredients!

What actually makes this Sensational Cajun Chicken Salad Cajun? It’s the Grilled Blackened Cajun Chicken Breasts but beyond that, I’ve used the kind of old-fashioned but always good Sensational Salad Dressing (it has Romano cheese in it) that hails from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. While a salad like this isn’t the traditional way to use the dressing, that dressing does make this salad sensational!

Our summer has gone from cold, cool and rainy to hot, humid and rainy in the snap of the finger! I don’t know about you but I just go limp when it’s too hot and humid. I don’t want to do anything, I don’t want to eat and I sure as heck don’t want to cook. And then when I do get hungry? I make bad choices. My solution? Make a great big ol’ salad and top it off with a quick & easy protein and a fabulous dressing. And so here’s my Mediterranean Salmon Salad.
