I’m obsessed with salad!!
It’s not that I’m trying to be healthy when I eat a salad, they just taste SO GOOD to me!! I mean, we all know that most salads come with a very UN-healthy salad dressing, which is usually my favorite part, but I love to try out new salad recipes and especially love it when they have a house dressing to go with it. I do like my ranch and Caesar dressings, but I LOVE a custom dressing that especially made for a salad, just like today’s creation.
This recipe is inspired by the Strawberry Harvest Salad at Zupa’s. Have you ever been there? They’re fairly new to Arizona, but they are similar to a Panera or Paradise Bakery and have soups, salads and sandwiches. They have so great options to order, but my favorite salad is this one. I had it last time I was in Arizona and knew I had to attempt a copycat recipe. It’s just too good not to. I’m happy to report that this salad tastes just like theirs, and I’m so glad I can still enjoy it’s delicious-ness being two states away. 😀
Even if you have never had this salad at Zupa’s, it’s definitely a good one to try. It has so many wonderful flavors and is simple to make! Here’s the recipe…
- 6 cups washed, dried and chopped romaine or salad greens
- 2 large cooked chicken breast, sliced
- 1 apple, thinly sliced
- ½ pint strawberries, sliced
- ½ cup craisins
- ½ cup Mozzarella cheese
- ½ cup candied pecans
- 1 cup strawberries with tops cut off
- 2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon pepper
- Add the greens to the salad bowl and top with chicken, apple slices, strawberry slices, craisins, Mozzarella cheese and candied Pecans.
- Make dressing by blending all the ingredients in a blender or food processor. Add dressing right before serving. ENJOY!
One of the best parts about the salad is the dressing! This Strawberry Vinaigrette Dressing is AMAZING!! It takes just a few minutes to make and is delicious too!! 😀
I truly believe you’ll love this recipe. It’s just so good and simple!!
I can’t wait to make it for my family back in Arizona. I think they’ll love it because they love Zupa’s just as much as I do. 😉
