Two posts in one day!? Yep. I am trying to get back in to my routine here. 

We have a staple salad recipe in our household that I thought I would share with you all today. It is quick, easy, and really simple. It is also customizable and has so many options!

Recipe

When I say we I mean pretty much everyone in my entire family.  My mom first started making this a couple years ago, and ever since I think every family has taken it and put their own twist on it. It’s just that delicious!

 

You may even remember it made an appearance at our Thanksgiving table.

The recipe starts with two simple ingredients.

Main Ingredients

Romaine and broccoli slaw. You can buy the bagged romaine or the hearts which is what I prefer. It always seems to taste a bit fresher to me, but I could be crazy.

You simply combine each.  I tend to decrease the amount of broccoli slaw in mine and add a little more romaine, but to each their own.

The toppings are by far the best part. There are so many options. I usually keep it simple and add the roasted Ramon noodles, almonds, and sunflower seed topping along with dried cranberries.

We have also used:

-Pears
-Apples
-Mandarin Oranges
-Chicken
-Salmon

The dressing and salad themselves are very light and go along with just about any combination!

I highly suggest you try this if you are looking for a healthy side for your dinner table.  It is also great to bring to a dinner party and has been used many times in my house.
