Around the time I discovered the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans group, I was just beginning to branch out with my culinary desires. I hated learning to cook growing up and I had 3 male roommates for several years during the “college” age. Once I started to realize how much I enjoyed my time in the kitchen, I slowly built my knowledge of different dishes.
If there’s one dish out there that literally has endless possibilities, it’s salad. It’s easily tailored to dietary needs as well as cravings. It’s good in a pinch for a hefty lunch and it’s always a good compliment to a dinner to get in those greens! Or heck, a big salad for dinner rocks too! I will admit that I’m a total sucker for the salad and ranch from Outback Steakhouse and I could eat that all day long, but it’s not the healthiest of options.
This tangy chicken salad is bright and tangy and served me well for about the first 6 months of my weight loss journey with the Sisterhood. I learned to mix it up to see what combination of fruits and veggies caught my taste buds. I generally prefer a salad loaded with veggies but when I need something a little sweeter, this salad is perfect. It’s a fast and filling meal with little to no effort.
- Make your life super easy and make this with rotisserie chicken from the deli at your favorite market!
- Add a little healthy fat with some creamy avocado.
