Salads… the new and improved version

As the temperatures go up and up and up here in South Texas, it can be hard to stay cool. Except, of course, if you have an office that is constantly on icebox temps, but I digress 😀

Anyway, to beat the heat, salads can be a good bet. However, a lot of folks think it’s lame because it’s what, lettuce, tomato, maybe some carrots with a little dressing? My suggestion is throwing in some chopped fruit. I’m digging strawberries, pineapple, even mandarin orange sections. Top that off with a mixed dried fruit and nut combo, and you got a salad that’s dialed into the summer channel. I also like the baby spinach/arugula bagged salads at the store for this.

My old school contribution to this… Good Seasons dressing. Seriously. The little flask rocks. There’s a Parm-Italian variety that really tastes comparable to my other all time favorite, Olive Garden Italian dressing.
