Southwestern Chopped Salad with Crockpot Beef - this mexican-inspired salad is loaded with protein, fresh veggies, and fiber | adoubledose.comBesides Mediterranean food, I could eat a salad every single day. I will be honest, though. If you’ve seen my salads on snapchat {alexis.belbel}, you’ll know that mine don’t look this pretty. They are pretty much thrown on a plate because I am almost alway in a rush and H A N G R Y! Shocker, right? This salad, though, is so easy to make and requires almost no work if you make the meat ahead of time!

If you haven’t prepared chicken or meat in the crockpot, it is a game changer. All you have to do is literally put the meat in, spices, and water, and you’re done. After 5-6 hours, you have all your protein prepped and ready for the week.

Well, actually let me rephrase that: I get tired of salads if they are the same old-same old. BUT this salad will not leave you feeling bored. 

It seems like since it is the new year, everyone is on the healthy train (which I think is GREAT), however, I think a lot of people have a misconception that salads are always healthy, and that is definitely not the case! I alway try to stick to healthy and light dressings like balsamic vinegar and olive oil and stay away from creamy dressings.

Roasted Autumn Salad with Kabocha and Lemon Tahini Dressing

It may be October, but Dallas has not gotten the memo. We are pretending it’s fall this week with this fall-inspired salad. I am not joking when I say we eat a salad at least once a day. I tend to put the same things in my salad each time I make it so it can get a little boring. I just usually will use whatever I have in the fridge which is usually tomatoes, bell pepper, cucumber, onions, and carrots and some grilled or shredded chicken

I LOVE cheese, but cheese does not love me so much, so unfortunately, I don’t usually get to add that into my salads. The other day, actually, we were at the mall and we grabbed a salad from those create-your-own salad places.

Southwestern Grilled Chicken Salad + Tuesday Tastes |9/29/15|

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Tyson®. The opinions and text are all mine.

Happy Tuesday! I hope you all are getting through the week and that it is flying by so far. We are almost at Wednesday, which means we are halfway through the week!

You all know we are all about easy meals, especially when we are busy and super hungry. We saw these Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Fully Cooked Refrigerated Fajita Chicken Strips at Walmart and thought they were perfect for topping salads or using for fajitas when we have nothing prepped. I could also see these being great in wraps or quesadillas!
