Blueberry and Feta Kale Salad

This yummy salad is great as the main star of the meal or a side dish! Most of the ingredients I don’t really measure, but just eyeball the ratio I want of each!

  • Kale
    or any lettuce/salad base you like best
  • Feta
    I think buying Feta in the block tastes so much better!
  • Blueberries
    I sprinkle in a handful
  • Sunflower Seeds or Walnuts
    I sprinkle in a handful
  • Grilled Chicken
  • Garlic Expressions Salad Dressing
    to taste

  1. If using grilled chicken, heat oven to 400 and bake chicken for 25-30 minutes (I like to make a few chicken breasts at once so I have it ready for the week!)

Hope you love this salad as much as I do! XOXO

Atlantis Bahamas Watermelon Salad

One of my all-time favorite salads from Atlantis Bahamas. I immediately took a photo of the menu to re-create at home!

  • Fresh Watermelon, cubed
  • Sweet Peas, about a handful
  • Fresh Radish, thinly sliced
  • Feta

Poppy Seed Pasta Salad

    Box of any noodles [spaghetti noodles work great too!]
  • 1-2
    Romaine hearts, washed and chopped
  • 1/2
    Red onion, diced
  • 2
    Large cucumbers, peeled and diced
  • 1
    Red bell pepper, washed and diced
  • 1
    Green bell pepper, washed and diced
  • 1
    Large tomato, washed and diced

    Bottles of poppy seed dressing

  1. Cook noodles, drain and rinse, then leave to cool in refrigerator – I like to prep the noodles at lunch time so they are nice and chilled by dinner time!

  2. Once noodles have cooled, add all veggies! You don’t have to use the exact veggies – use anything that you like!

  3. Add either 1 to 2 bottles on poppy seed dressing, depending on how saucy you want it to be!

  4. Give it one final chill and you are ready to go!

  5. Super great recipe to eat on its own or as a side throughout the week!
