Enough complaining. I made it happen. I went out today in the snow and bought vegetables. Let's just not talk about my carbon footprint on those veggies because I just know they were not being grown in the Arctic where I live here in the Midwest.
Iowa Girl Eats instead. She uses the dressing to top her BBQ Chicken Quinoa Salad.
- Spinach and finely shredded cabbage instead of iceberg lettuce. Spinach and cabbage are super high in nutrients and iceberg isn't nearly as much bang for your buck. I love the crunch of cabbage that sort of emulates what you love about iceberg. Speaking of bucks... why on earth is iceberg so expensive in Chicago? Absurd. Cabbage and spinach are pennies compared. And better.
- Added roasted poblano in with my roasted corn. I grilled both on my stovetop reversible griddle pan. I also used my new olive oil sprayer and it worked great!
- Different dressing: 1/3 cup Greek yogurt + 1/3 cup BBQ sauce coated a large glass bowl of salad perfectly without being too soggy.
