Making crazy salads is one of my very favorite things to make. I love switching things up with a big variety of toppings and different flavors. My mom is the queen of huge salads for meals and that is where I think I get my love of big salads from. Luckily, my husband shares the same love of big salads that I have so making dinner at my house is easy. Adalyn also loves salads so much. We are a salad loving household!

For this salad, I decided to go a little crazy. It is summer and all of the produce is so fresh, flavorful and delicious so I decided to go wild and load this salad with all-the-toppings and flavors. I debated on adding black beans for the protein, using mangoes instead of pineapple, putting the corn in the salsa instead of on the side, etc. I think that all of these options would work well.

This salad is not one of those lame salads with iceberg lettuce and a tomato slice. Nope! It is loaded with fresh grilled corn on the cob, bell peppers and red onions. Then, it is topped with a fresh pineapple salsa with peppers, onions and tomatoes with lime juice. The finishing touch was a high protein Sandwich Bros. chicken melt, chopped up. These are tasty and my whole family likes them. For a dressing, I think that a creamy dressing such as an avocado ranch or a cilantro ranch would work well but I decided to go with a homemade garlic lime vinaigrette for maximum fresh flavor.

        For the chicken, I kept things really simple and chopped up a Sandwich Bros. Chicken Melt which features all white meat chicken and Wisconsin cheese in a pita. I just heated it up and chopped it into bite sized pieces for a simple addition of protein. These come in a few snack varieties including the Angus Cheeseburgers, Pizza Melts and Gyro Sliders.

        If I'm on the go, I like heating these up in the microwave for a quick snack or part of my breakfast. I eat the Chicken Melts without any sauce and like a little bit of hot sauce or ketchup on the Egg White and Turkey Sausage variety.
