Trader Joe's/Kevin's Salad

Can I please tell yall our favorite salad these days?  Welllll I don't know the name of it - we made it up.  I've been trying to get quicker (and easier) dinners together because Kevin has been beating me home from work and he always likes to help get dinner started.  ;)

Trader Joe's has these pre-packaged grilled chicken strips with different marinades.  The one we got is similar to the below except it's the thai seasoned one (or something like that!).  It's the orange package. 

We get some of their romaine lettce, chop it and spread it all over a dinner plate.  We add a lil goat cheese, sliced almonds, tomatoes, cucumbers and whatever else we have.  I say "we" but it's really Kevin making it most of the time since recently I haven't been making it home in a normal hour - too sweet right?!

And then - the best salad dressing EVER - Trader Joe's Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette.  AH-mazing.  And yall, I don't even like spicy spicy things.  But this isn't spicy like that - it's just got some kick to it. 
(Thank you google images for the above photos by the way!)

And then - an easy, healthy, tasty dinner!

Please tell me your favorite salad!!

Unfortunately, my favoite salad is a Chef's Salad smothered in Ranch Dressing. Nothing healthy about that :*(

i'm a very picky eater, so i'd have to say my favorite is just a plain old chicken caesar (i do like to mix it up with asiago peppercorn dressing on occasion, though!). i'm new to the world of blogging, please stop by!

I must go get that chicken at TJ's! looks yummy! I love a cobb salad because of the egg and avocado. I also love one my mom makes with strawberried, grapes, and ginger snaps. My husband says I would eat gummy bears on my salad if I could! haha

Okay, that sounds and looks amazing!! We buy the precooked grilled chicken a lot, too! We use it on salads or to make quesadillas...quick and easy!!

Its going to sound completely weird. Spinach topped with strawberries (raspberries work too), blue cheese, almonds, and Ken's Healthy Options Videlia onion vinagarette. delish.

yum! I need to make this. I like Asian inspired salads with sesame vinaigrette, mandarin oranges, chicken, almonds, etc. Or Mexican type with black beans, lime, chips, salsa and cheese!

We love a good wedge or Dean & Deluca's Cobb salad (I sub their sundried tomatoes for the raw ones). We obviously eat very healthy salads (HA!). Bring on the blue cheese dressing and bacon!!! Not "Bacon Bits" either, the real stuff!
