Recipe: Jax's favorite salad.

There has been many times that I spent days planning, prepping, and cooking a killer meal.
After we all shovel it down, it's my stupid salad that always gets all the compliments.
I mean, that kills me!  It makes me want to scream "REALLY, the SALAD impressed you?"!

This happened to me yet again at my baby girl's birthday party.
I had trays upon trays of food and people were asking me for my salad recipe.
A salad recipe?  Really, people?!  It's lettuce with whatever you feel like putting on top!!!!

After years of dreading those salad compliments, I've decided to finally accept the fact that it deserves a recipe.
This salad has been my lunch daily for over 6 years!  It also appears during my fancy dinner parties.

Please excuse the old picture.  I don't have many salad pics!

Jax's favorite salad recipe.

**Serving Size- 8 People or 4 Personal Lunches**

(3) Romaine Lettuce Hearts
(1) Pint Grape Tomatoes
(1) Fresh Mozzarella Log (I only use Bel Gioso)
(2) Red Bell Peppers
(2) Avocados
(1) Bag of Ocean Spray Craisins

Clean and chop all the romaine hearts into bite size pieces of lettuce.  Cut the avocados in half, remove the pits, and cut into bit size pieces.  Clean the grape tomatoes and cut in half.  Slice and dice the fresh mozzarella log into bite size pieces.  Clean and cut the red bell peppers into bite size pieces.  Place each ingredient in a bowl or lunch container in that specific order.  Sprinkle with desired amount of craisins.
If you're OCD like me, count to make sure you have an equal amount of cheese and tomato bites!

Please note:  I do not use dressing, but for company I'll supply extra virgin olive oil and vinegar.
I eat the lettuce with pieces of the avocado bites and a crasin.  This way it doesn't need dressing!

How do you make your favorite salad?

  1. It looks delicious! I wasn't sure if it was mozzarella or feta cheese on yours. I'm a big fan of Greek salad. We used to go to a diner owned by Greek family and they made the BEST greek salads! But when the dad died, they ended up closing the diner :(

  3. Salads always work for lunch. Hey, at least they like it, better than not liking it.

  4. lettuce is just nasty, 'tis for rabbits and bunnies.... but I do love me tomatoes ... never had avocado, though, and cheese is mostly a no no for lactose intolerant lil' Dezzy
