Some Like It Hot....Salad That Is!

Happy Wednesday!  I wanted to share with you a dish I am super in love with and just cannot get enough of...and it simply is eating a salad hot!
Here are the ingredients:  A bag of DOLE CHOPPED SALAD KIT in Sunflower Crunch...Coconut Oil from Central Market...A dash of sea salt, a dash of Simply Asia Sweet Ginger Garlic from Costco... and a chopped apple!

A teaspoon goes in the skillet and heat on medium high.

Then fill your skillet with the salad bag...sprinkle with the seasonings and top with the chopped apple and sunflower seeds.  It cooks down in about five minutes and I usually allow it to simmer for about 15 minutes...then YUM!  Variations equally as good...cook in the dressing which accompanies the salad or add salmon or chicken...or fresh pineapple!

I am not being paid by anyone to give you this recipe...I just like it so much I had to share!  Something else I like is Woolite's Campaign for Dress for Success...this video is fun and I love the message of confidence...

  1. This sounds great and I'm going to try it. I also love hot salad, weird as it sounds! I have had THE BEST (unhealthy) hot salads in Pittsburgh, they are famous for the Pittsburgh Salad and let me tell you - it turned me on to hot salads for good!! I try to keep them healthy though, and this one sounds like a keeper!

    1. It's really good, Karen! And healthy...I know I could chop all of this myself...but with my current busy life, this makes things quick,easy and good! It is a keeper!

  2. It looks delicious, Pam! xo


  3. Pam, this sounds super healthy and a great way to get a healthy dinner on the table fast. Not sure if I would still call it "salad" but hey, whatever floats your boat! :)

  4. This sounds like a great time saver - no chopping, no prep, and the coconut oil (if you use unrefined) would give it a great taste just perfect for serving with chicken. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com

  5. Looks tempting. Sounds tempting. Definitely worth trying it this weekend. Thank you.

  6. I love salads, especialy since I have that ,,tire''!

  7. I love this idea. This gives me something to fix for the hubby when life is busy and hectic. I've never tried this but it makes total sense it would taste great.
