1. Chipotle Bowl from Chipotle:
This is one of my favorite copycat recipes to make at home, too. Barbacoa is my very favorite!
2. Market Salad from Chick-fil-A:
If you're a southern mom like me, you probably eat at Chick-fil-A more than you'd like to admit. My kiddos love their nuggets, but this mom is hooked on the Market Salad with grilled chicken.
3. House Salad from Olive Garden:
Who doesn't love the house salad from Olive Garden? One of my favorite things to do is meet my mom at Olive Garden for soup and salad. Yum!
4. Paradise Greek Salad from Paradise Bakery:
I use to work near a Paradise Bakery and I ate this salad probably at least two times a week. Oh man, I love that place! Salads, bagels, and chocolate chip chippers. Well, at least I don't have to feel guilty about the salad, right?
5. Tropichop from Pollo Tropical:
I am fairly new to Pollo Tropical, but absolutely love it! If I am being 100% honest, I pour tons of that yummy cilantro sauce on everything I get there. I could order Plain Jane lettuce, as long as it's got that sauce on it, I'll eat it!
6. Mango Chicken Salad from On the Border:
When Mark and I were dating, we were big OTB fans. We don't go there that often now, because we live in Texas and there's a Mexican restaurant on every corner, and the nearest OTB is about twenty miles away, which means we pass approximately 94,386 Mexican restaurants before we get there. Even though we don't go there often, this salad is still a favorite!
7. Chicken Caesar Salad from La Madeleine:
I said I wasn't going to pick a favorite, but THIS IS TOTALLY IT! Yes, it's one of my favorite salads, but it's also where Kendall will choose to eat lunch 99.7% of the time when we have a girl's day. We always split a chicken caesar salad, and I get a cup of tomato basil soup. There's really nothing better than lunch at La Madeleine with your daughter and having a little girl talk.
8. Chopped Antipasto from Buca Di Beppo:
Bucca di Beppo is one of mine and Mark's favorite date night spots. We always start with this salad and then split an entree. If you haven't tried this one, add it to your list.
9. Lettuce Wraps from Pei Wei:
OK, so technically this isn't a salad, but it has all the components of a salad...with a twist. Lettuce wraps are one of my favorite things to order at Pei Wei.
10. The Original BBQ Chicken Chopped Salad from California Pizza Kitchen:
You know that tiny, little percent of a chance that I mentioned, when Kendall doesn't pick La Madeleine for lunch? That's when she picks California Pizza Kitchen! Their chopped BBQ Chicken salad is similar to their famous BBQ Chicken pizza. Pizza for Kendall; salad for the mom.
Those are my top ten choices for salads. What is your favorite place to grab a salad? Be sure to check by Shelly and Katy's blogs to see other popular summer salad options.
Have a terrific Tuesday!
