#NYTWellChallenge – 2/23

Today we’re working on NOURISH.

The New York Times Wellness Challenge asked us to Fatten our Salad. I have several go-to salads that fit this bill. They are mostly from restaurants, although I can and have recreated them at home. I understand that SUGAR is where the culprit lies, not FAT.

Wedge Salad – Sprinkle a wedge of iceberg lettuce with craisens, chopped pecans, blue cheese, and crisp bacon. Add blue cheese dressing.

Italian Deli Chopped Salad – Greens, diced tomatoes, bacon, chickpeas, diced hard salami, diced mortadella, shredded mozzarella cheese. Top with creamy homemade Italian dressing.

Mexican Chopped Salad – Greens, diced tomatoes, chopped avocado, chopped grilled chicken breast, roasted corn, bacon, and gorgonzola cheese. Add Chipotle Ranch dressing.

I’ll be eternally grateful when spring comes, and decent tomatoes re-appear.
