My Top Ten Favorite Big Ass Salad Recipes


Here’s a recipe roundup of my top ten favorite big ass salad recipes. No puny little bowls of sad, naked greens here! Your satisfaction factor with these salads will be through the roof! Most of these only take a few minutes to assemble as well, which makes it super convenient if you’re a busy mom with a toddler, like me, and you want a filling and balanced meal.

So let’s do this…



I like this without the cheese, because I’m weird about where I like to eat my cheese. But if you like cheese on a salad, good for you, but we can no longer be friends.

There’s something mouth-watering about this combo of sweet and tangy BBQ sauce, chicken, tortilla strips, corn, and lots of greens. Mmmm. Again, no cheese though. Cheese doesn’t belong on hamburgers or salads, (unless it’s mozzarella on my black bean burger taco salad listed down below). So sue me.

I like hamburgers. But sometimes I pile on so many vegetables and condiments that it can resemble the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Hence, the hamburger chopped salad was born.
