Kitchen Sink Salad

Kitchen Sink Salad

Why was the tomato blushing… because he saw the salad dressing. I know its old.. 

OKAY… that is my last attempt at a joke. I think it’s time to listen to the people around me – I am really not funny.

But is all seriousness this throw it all in kitchen sink salad is one of my favourite! I know I know, I say that a lot – but what I can’t say about a lot of my other recipes is that I took this to lunch about 90% of the time I worked a full time job and absolutely loved it every single day!

Use up what ever you have in the fridge, throw it in a bowl add some corn chips for crunch and a delicious super light and healthy dressing!

This Salad is super healthy and super TASTY! In my opinion this salad goes well with a simple side of protein such as the crispy popcorn chicken!
