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…
Strawberry Harvest Salad Recipe
- 6 cups romaine lettuce washed, dried and chopped or salad greens
- 2 large chicken breasts cooked and sliced
- 1 apple thinly sliced
- 1/2 cup craisins
- 1/2 cup Mozzarella cheese
- 1/2 cup candied pecans
- 1 cup strawberries with tops cut off
- 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp 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. 😉
