The Stuff You Need:
Ingredients for two classic salads

Avocado – half each, sliced and sprinkled with lime juice and salt
Red Onion- shaved, a slice or two each.
Cherry tomatoes – 3 or 5 each
Cucumber – 4 or 5 slices each
Hard Boiled Egg – half each, sliced
Bacon – 4 slices, cooked, drained and crumbled
Stupid Easy Croutons (optional)
Dressing: Bleu Cheese or Ranch
How To Do This:
- Prepare your protein of choice. If using Chicken,* grill or saute. If using Shrimp, steam or grill.
- Arrange your choice of lettuce on the center of the plates. Arrange the avocado, onion, tomatoes, cucumber and egg around the greens. Top the greens with sliced cooked chicken or shrimp, add your dressing of choice, and garnish with the bacon crumbles and croutons, if using.
*Chicken breast can be tenderized with a meat mallet, marinated in buttermilk ahead of time, or just seasoned with salt and pepper before cooking.
