Favorite Salad

A few months ago, I was flying out of the Burbank, California airport and I had the ABSOLUTE BEST salad of my life.  Since then, I’ve thought about that salad quite often.  Probably at least once a week…no joke.  Mel probably thinks I’m crazy because I’ll randomly say, “I want some of that salad.”  I ordered the Mexican salad but instead of the jalapeno dressing, I had the creamy Asian dressing.  I’m sure it’s just as good with the jalapeno dressing. =)

I tried recreating the salad but it’s hard to find the perfect creamy Asian dressing.  However, it’s still pretty darn good and even Mel enjoys it!

Salad Ingredients:

  • romaine lettuce
  • sweet corn
  • turkey
  • bacon (oooooooh yeeeea)
  • guacamole
  • cheese of your choice (I used American)
  • cherry tomatoes (I don’t like tomatoes)
  • tortilla strips salad toppings

Salad Dressing:

Trader Joe’s Asian Style Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette is good, but I’m still searching for a better one.  In the meantime, I’m using my other favorite dressing:

  • Mix in a 1/2 to 1 tablespoon of brown sugar.

  • Shake it, shake it, shake it!

The KEY to making this salad so good (and probably any other salad) is all about execution.  Throw all the ingredients and dressing into a large mixing bowl and use a pair of cooking tongs to mix it all together.

So if you’re ever in Terminal A at the Burback airport, go to the cafe that serves fresh salads made to order.  Gosh, I can’t wait to go back to that airport…
