Meatless Monday – Salad Bar

I know, it is a bit sad to do a post on a salad bar, but I love salad bar night! I try to not do it very often because I get complaints from certain members of the family but Jordan and I love it. It has been quite hot here lately and cooking is the last thing I want to do, so a big salad bar is the perfect summer dinner.

We sort of cheated – it’s not actually meatless, since I had chicken available for the complainers! But you can build your salad bar any way you’d like.

I chop up a ton of different veggies and keep them in separate bowls. Also lettuce (obviously), different types of beans, cheese, onions, olives, cilantro, etc. I also have some sort of yummy bread available. And of course, different salad dressing choices and croutons! Yay! The leftovers get stashed away for lunch the next day.

A quick note on the salad dressing. I am a bottled salad dressing person. I know people who make their own dressing and that is great, I just don’t do that. However, I do “make” this dressing. It is my favorite! All I do is follow the recipe on the packet of Good Seasons salad dressing mix and use all of their measurements for vinegar, water and oil. The only difference is that I use Balsamic vinegar. It just gives it a rich flavor. I have tried using garlic olive oil and that is quite yummy too. Enjoy!
