Quick Salad Ideas: Healthy Salad Recipes

Did you already ditch your new year’s resolutions?! I sure hope not. Or, if you did, there’s no time like the present to bring them back. There are a few things that I use to keep me organized (like my overwhelming amount of productivity tools and planners), but when it comes to my health, repetition works well for me. I am the kind of person that LOVES eating the same things every day. I like a fully stocked pantry with easy-to-reach healthier options. I’m no stranger to StarKist, and I knew I needed to try these StarKist Chicken Creations since they fall in line with my easy lunch ideas.

Since I work at home, I need EASY and fast ideas to keep me going on these long days. Just because I have the luxury of my kitchen doesn’t mean I want to use it. I read an article from a friend recently, and she shared how she eats TWO salads a day. By using shortcuts (bagged salads or already chopped veggies) PLUS simple proteins make it SO easy to do this. If you bring lunch to work, this idea works for you too. Whether it’s a side salad for a snack or a hearty dinner salad, you could try StarKist Chicken Creations to jazz up your salads and make mealtime EASY!

What are StarKist Chicken Creations? They are easy to use pouches to take on-the-go. While they also offer a variety of tuna and salmon pouches too, these NEW Chicken Creations have a flavorful taste that is amazing piled high on a bed of greens. The pouches are great for travel, and you can grab a salad on your lunch break and customize it with these easy to use pouches.

To get started with these two salad ideas, add StarKist Chicken Creations to your grocery list. They have a variety of flavors that you can eat as is or use in a recipe for a full meal. Pack on the protein! Just tear, eat, and go! As for flavors, look for StarKist Chicken Creations BOLD Buffalo Style, StarKist Chicken Creations Chicken Salad, StarKist Chicken Creations Ginger Soy, and StarKist Chicken Creations Zesty Lemon Pepper. While any of these flavors are just what your lunchtime routine needs, I am particularly interested in the BOLD Buffalo Style and the Ginger Soy.

To get started with a classic buffalo chicken salad without a lot of fuss, use mixed greens as a base. I love spinach in a salad as well. Pile high with bacon bits, blue cheese crumbles, hard-boiled eggs, cheddar cheese, tomatoes, and of course, StarKist Chicken BOLD Buffalo Style.

It is very filling with a kick of spice that is SO good! It’s a healthier twist on my favorite buffalo chicken salad. Nothing fried here!

Another way you can serve a salad is with a hint of Asian flavor. StarKist Chicken Creations Ginger Soy is the perfect topping for a simple salad.

Asian Chicken Salad Recipe

This salad uses greens which includes cabbage, romaine, celery, and green onion are combined with croutons, sesame seeds, and of course, StarKist!

We used an Asian salad dressing to tie in the flavor, but because the StarKist Ginger Soy already has enough flavor, it wasn’t necessary.

You can mix and match our favorite flavors to give you an on-the-go flavor that is unmatched. I know that I frequent a salad bar often when I am out, but sometimes they just don’t have any protein I like. I’m happy to know that I can take these with me to add flavor to a bland salad!
