Recently I shared what might be my favorite salad in all of LA, the Chop Salad from Lodge Bread. It’s just perfection. It’s herby, zingy, crunchy, briny, and just everything I want in a salad. You’ll want to double or even triple the dressing recipe to keep on hand for throwing together salads during the week.
This recipe calls for cooked chicken breast or rotisserie chicken as I made this like it’s made from Lodge Bread, but I still want to offer some other options in proteins. Grilled chicken breast and rotisserie chicken offer a lean and tasty source of essential protein and nutrients without loading up on unhealthy fats. What else could you add?
- Salmon! It’s is loaded with omega-3 fatty acids that are great for your heart and brain, high-quality protein for muscles, and essential vitamins and minerals for overall health. Try my Blackened Salmon Bites or Lemon Garlic Butter Salmon Bites.
- Flank Steak. We are not afraid of red meat people! Flank steak is a lean cut of beef packed with protein and essential nutrients like iron, zinc, and vitamin B12. It’s a great choice for muscle health, providing a boost of energy and supporting functions like oxygen transport in the body.
- Crispy Tofu is a fantastic plant-based protein source, low in calories and high in nutrients like iron, calcium, and magnesium. It’s also rich in essential amino acids and can support muscle health, bone strength, and overall well-being in a nutritious, low-fat package. This Crispy Tofu recipe shows exactly how I get it perfectly crispy and feel free to season it however you prefer to pair with this salad.
However you make it, you are going to love! It is seriously so simple, easy to make and the dressing puts it over the top. Enjoy!
