Summer Supper Salad

Last summer I had a very yummy salad at the home of Kris from Simplify. I could not remember exactly what all was in it so I sort of created it from what I had on hand. In summer we often have big crunchy salads for dinner. I served it along with cheesey bread. Simply sour dough with melted shredded sharp cheddar toasted in the broiler. Tomatoes and cucumbers were from the garden. Yum!

Summer Supper Salad
Chopped lettuce
Cooked diced chicken breasts
Whole wheat noodles boiled al dente
Toasted pine nuts
Feta cheese crumbled (or a cheese you like)
Diced tomatoes
Crumbled turkey bacon
Dressing of your choice
Toss together and enjoy!

Another favorite summer supper salad.

And my recipes page is back up on the blog. Lot's more dinner ideas there.

Your salad looks so good!! Very refreshing to have these supper salads in the summer I think!
The salad I made when you and Patty were here, was a family favorite of ours. We use a rotisserie chicken, romaine lettuce, parmesan cheese, grape tomatoes, pine nuts or sunflower seeds, pasta, and I usually toss in some torn fresh basil too. I use a lo calorie creamy caesar dressing. But any additions would be great too. Like crisp cukes, and bacon, and hard boiled egg...etc.
I have a hair appointment this morning, and I will call you when I get home. We'll go from there. I am so sad though.

That chicken pasta salad looks really good! Will definitely be trying that for a dinner on one of these nights where it's too hot to cook. Thanks!

I love any kind of summer salad and this one sounds delish! I haven't been doing much in the cooking Dept lately. : ( gotta snap out of this.

Salad looks really good. It's similar to a salad my mother use to make. Except she used tuna for the meat. She also didn't add noddles. I will be making yours for a new salad to add to my dinners. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Yum! We love salads in summer. It's so hot here that you don't really feel like eating anything heavy or heating up the kitchen.
