Salad Ingredient Combinations + A Few Treats

Jumping right into some recent salads and treats!

Let’s start with salads as I have good salad ingredient combinations to share.

Even when I think about trying Sweet Green again, I still end up at Chopt. At this point, I actually have no idea what is in my Chopt salads since I hit “reorder” in the app so often.

If I had to guess, it involves crispy chickpeas, avocado, tomato, roasted Brussels sprouts, a few other ingredients, and the lemon tahini dressing.


Isn’t this salad combination colorful? Since Trader Joe’s was out of romaine lettuce (again), I bought the Organic Ready Set Salad blend and a Barbeque Ranch Salad Kit instead.

For this colorful salad, I mixed the two salad blends together and added the following:

  • Roasted Japanese Potatoes
  • Roasted Tomatoes
  • Cucumbers
  • Onion
  • Chickpeas
  • Avocado

Let’s call the below salad a Thanksgiving leftovers salad. My aunt sent me home with leftovers from Thanksgiving so I used the following to make this salad.

  • Salad Blend (from Thanksgiving)
  • Broccoli (from Thanksgiving)
  • String Beans (from Thanksgiving)
  • Stuffing (from Thanksgiving)
  • Cucumbers
  • Tomatoes
  • Chickpeas
  • Balsamic Vinaigrette

I say this a lot lately but seriously, the red lentil pasta from Trader Joe’s really makes for the easiest dinner.

On the side for this particular pasta dinner, I made a salad using the Organic Ready To-Eat Salad Blend. I think this organic salad blend includes kale, carrots, and different types of cabbage. I also added tomatoes, cucumbers, onion, avocado, and balsamic vinaigrette.

I really like the Organic Ready To Eat Salad blend and will continue to buy it now each week.


Nothing is better than this combination! The whole wheat margarita pizza from Mario’s with a salad is still a go-to dinner for me.



I’m not the Starbucks fancy drink type of person. In fact, I don’t even go to Starbucks for coffee more than a couple of times a year.

However, I did get a latte while shopping in the mall the other day though. Really a random treat when I get one!


Speaking of treats, this cookie cup filled with chocolate fudge frosting from Uncle Guiseppe’s is just so good.


And look what I have in the house again! I love these Gingerman cookies that hang on the side of a mug from Trader Joe’s!
