Dee’s Menu ~ Salad Recipes
David and I spent last week in North Myrtle Beach and it was wonderful! We hated to come home and I’ll be telling you more about it – probably tomorrow. We both spent a lot of time in swimsuits, something neither of us has done in years. And that is part of the reason we are eating salads this week. Ha!
Our local farmers markets are open this week and I’m looking forward to all the lovely produce available throughout the summer months. I love a good salad and will be including a lot of them in the coming weeks’ menus. To kick start the season of fewer clothes we are focusing on salad recipes this week. Let’s take a look…
David has a firefighter meeting tonight so that means I have no idea what time we’ll have dinner. I love the fact I can prep all the ingredients for this salad and then just toss them together when he gets home.
Southwestern Chopped Salad With Buttermilk Ranch Dressing
Garlic, lime and pineapple? I’m sold!
Garlic and Lime Barbecue Chicken Salad
I bought one of the last packages of fresh green beans at Aldi. The woman working that section told me they had come in and sold out in nothing flat. I’m looking forward to using them in this next salad.
I’m planning to take my mom up to Norman to eat lunch at our favorite Indian restaurant. This will be an early Mother’s Day outing. Neither David, nor my dad are big fans but she and I love this place. I try to take her up there once a year. For dinner, we’ll switch cuisines and have my Asian Pasta Salad.
I like to make Friday dinners a little more “special” and this steak salad looks like it will be perfect for kicking off the weekend.
Steak Salad With Caramelized Red Onions
A chicken Caesar salad is always a winner and this one, while not exactly traditional, looks delicious.
We’ll finish the week with my yummy Taco Frito Salad.
What about you? Do you enjoy a good main dish salad? If you have a favorite leave me a comment and tell me about it (or leave a link to the recipe).

You won’t be catching me in a swimsuit any time soon, salad or no salad. Still, salads are a good meal option, especially for those days when you’re not sure exactly what time you’ll be able to sit down to dinner.

Ha! I felt the same way about the swimsuit thing. But I convinced myself that I wasn’t going to miss out because of my body image issues. Besides, David was the only one there I knew and he’s seen me. 😉 Still, I’m more determined than ever to shed some pounds before our trip to Belize this fall.
Well, good luck. 🙂
