As we head into the holiday season, it’s nice to have a lighter, healthier option on hand for those days when you can feel you’ve overindulged.

Broccoli Salad

bbq-1

It is football season, which means it is Tailgating/BBQ/GameDay Party Season. I really think autumn is the best of the seasons and the return of football is just one of the reasons. Many of my friends and I are die-hard FSU fans, bleeding Garnet and Gold ,and we get together pretty frequently to have BBQs and Game Day parties.

I like to make this Broccoli Salad every so often, and it’s always a hit. You get sweet and savory all in one, with a dose of veggie vitamins! And how can you not love a side dish with bacon as a primary ingredient?

Chicken Slider Stacks

 
I have mentioned my affinity for summer salads in the past. I eat them all the time and I didn’t want to bore with another one, so I thought a salad stack might be nice. Let’s get vertical!
 
You can get the perfect bite at every pass. The ultimate.
 
These Chicken Slider Stacks are easy, quick, healthy and super scrumptious. You could of course turn them into a burger or sandwich, but I’m all about minimizing the carb intake. They are perfect for the Paleo crowd or you can add some sharp cheese for extra oomph. 
 
Start by plating your arugula, then stack on from there. 

Summer Salad of Grilled Chicken over Baby Spinach with Crispy Leeks and Pancetta

 
I know it is common knowledge, but I have to state the obvious–Florida summers can be brutally hot (like, frying pan to the face, hot). This is one of the reasons I look for ways to create fresh, light meals–dinners I can put together with out a lot of fuss or extra heat waves. One of the easiest ways to do that is to make a salad, and I am a big fan of salads (and staying cool). I don’t like to be hot when I eat and I certainly don’t want to eat hot food when I am hot so, I play around with different salads all summer. This one was fast, simple and super flavorful.
