How to Make Sensational Salads

Salad is eaten practically every day in some families. Individuals might have salad for lunch at work. At home, individuals or families might enjoy a salad with dinner. A side salad is always a nutritious way to fill up before or during your main meal. When prepared just right, the salad itself can be the main meal. How do you make your salads? Do you need some new suggestions? Here are some recipes for how to make sensational salads that taste great. They include steak salad, grilled chicken salad and 'ham and eggs' salad often know as chef's salad.

Steak Salad

1lb chopped sirloin

1 cup italian dressing

1/2 cup crumbled feta or blue cheese

1/2 cup raw spinach leaves (optional)

1-2 cups shredded iceberg lettuce

Grilled Chicken and Lettuce Salad (Chicken Caesar Salad)

1lb chicken breast half sliced

1 cup caesar dressing

2 cups shredded iceberg lettuce

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 tablespoon vinegar

Ham and Eggs Salad (Chef's Salad)

2 cups chopped, lean ham

3 hard boiled eggs, cut in halves

2 cups iceberg lettuce

thousand island or russian dressing

Steak Salad

 Among the salads listed above, my favorite one to prepare is the steak salad and I make it quite often for my family. It's a filling dish that needs nothing served with it in addition. We recently purchased a slowcooker, so now I prepare the sirloin with various spices (black pepper, ginger, garlic, paprika, parsley), in the slow cooker first. My other hub on slowcookers explains that 8-9 hours cooking time is ideal for meat's desired tenderness.

 Just a little bit of water can be used to create a simmering broth for the meat to cook. When it is full cooked, drain the meat well and allow it to cool a bit before adding it to the salad.

Add Feta Cheese or Blue Cheese to the Salad

While the beef is nearing the end of being prepared in the slowcooker, you can further prep your iceburg lettuce by adding the italian dressing and feta or blue cheese as mentioned in the ingredient list above.

You will be adding the beef to the salad as the final ingredient.

Now, you are finished. Enjoy your meal!
