Salad on the Brain

I heart salads, i mean really good salads. And this summer i've made some GOOD ones! :) With the summer heat kickin', the last thing i want to do is cook. So i've been trying a lot of new salads. It actually started by putting "salad" into the allrecipes search box. WOO there are a TON of great salads on that site. Once my bookmarks were overflowing with salad recipes, it was time to dive right in.

Apple-Cheddar Tossed Salad

I used every possible shortcut available with this recipe and turned out a mighty fine salad in about 5 minutes flat! I used bagged salad, bagged shredded cheese and Newman's Honey Mustard Dressing. I think the longest part of putting this salad together was cutting the apple. And i have an apple slicer so really that was like 15 seconds of work. ;)

So if you are looking for a QUICK and tasty salad, i highly recommend this one! :)

hey mel,
that looks yummy. i made up an awesome side dish of 1 can of white corn (if you actually roasted corn on the cob it would be even better), 1 avocado cut in chunks, 1/2 red onion diced, 1 carton of grape tomatoes cut in half - mixed together with a tbsp of olive oil, juice from a whole lime and a ton of cilantro. it was so good and tasted even better as leftovers. it is totally summer-y.
