HH vs HH: Salad Night!

It was the first day of school today (I'm a teacher), so I needed a quick and easy dinner that did not require
cooking over a hot stove or oven! In fact, Hubby and I have salads quite often for dinner. They just differ quite a bit in regards to their toppings.

Both salads started with a base of leafy romaine + organic baby spinach. And that's when the similarities end... :)

Healthy Honey's Salad
  • The greens
  • Chopped roma tomato
  • Red onion
  • Red kidney beans
  • Corn
  • Diced avocado
  • Dressed with apple cidar vinegar+red wine vinegar and drizzles of dijon mustard +honey

Hungry Hubby's Salad
  • The greens
  • Reduced fat Mexican-blend shredded cheese
  • Shredded chicken (from a grocery store rotisserie)
  • Bacon bits
  • Sunflower kernels
  • Dressed with salsa and light ranch

And because it was the first day of school, I washed it down with a glass of Oak Leaf Pinot Grigio. (Yes, that is the Walmart brand. No I am not ashamed to buy Walmart wine. It is seriously good for $2.47 a bottle. Same taste as my old/usual $10 bottles.) Hungry Hubby had a Heineken.

What do you like on your salads? Will your husbands eat them if they are hearty enough? (I call it the man salad.)

  1. The boy hasss to have meat on his salad or he feels deprived! He likes mixed field greens, cherub tomatoes, blue cheese crumbles, vinegarette and a chunk of a grilled flank steak heavily seasoned with coarse black pepper. (ABS diet recipe)
