#26 My Favorite Salad S1:E1

My Favorite Salad: Season 1, Episode 1
This is a salad you will definitely see in another episode later this year.

I pile the ingredients in this order:

Chopped romaine

Homegrown alfalfa sprouts (thanks for the kit, Michelle!)

Chopped avocado, cucumber, and tomato 

Corn (I warmed up some from a can)

Sliced Gardein Chipotle Crispy Fingers 

Fried tortilla strips

Black Creek Ranch Dressing (NF recipe)

I also drizzled some BBQ sauce around the plate for a little sweetness.

Oh Yummmm!! I'm not kidding when I say that I could eat this once or twice a week. I love the flavor, texture and temperature variations in this salad.  
Crunchy: romaine, sprouts, cucumber, tortilla strips and crispy fingers.  
Creamy: ranch, avocado
Spicy: Crispy fingers  
Sweet: BBQ sauce, tomato and corn
Warm: crispy fingers and corn  
Cool: ranch, lettuce, avocado, cucumber, and tomato
