I weighed myself this week. I really, really didn’t want to. I stood naked in front of the scale, debating whether or not I really wanted to see that digital number; the one that now screams YOU COW!” I think the scale has some sort of grudge against me. Like it’s on a never ending crusade to keep my self-esteem on the abysmal side.

It succeeded. I was sad all day, even though my jeans are less snug and my stomach is not protruding as much. That number on the scale gave me a case of the sads.

So I made myself a salad to cheer up. I could have EASILY made a brownie pie. Real talk – I really wanted to make a brownie pie. I still want to make a brownie pie and plant my face on it. While it’s still warm. I won’t though… It would get me any closer to giving my scale the finger.

So I’m eating more salads. The thing is I’m a salad idiot.

I’m clueless when it comes to salad combos. Really. It’s one of those things. Give me a can of dulce de leche and I can make 20 desserts (and eat half a can), but give me a bag of greens and I’m all like…

Do I boil it?

Sauté it?

Broil it?

Fry it?

I dunno…

Fortunately Redpack was there to help with their taste bud tantalizing summer salad combos. I was sent  a sample pack of Redpack tomatoes and some delicious summer salad recipes to try. Not only were their salads simply delicious, I’ve become less salad challenged.

My favorite was the Raspberry Shrimp Salad. Oh, Mylanta – It was good! My crew is not big on salads – They’re carnivores for life – Yet these salads were completely devoured.

I was able to Spin, Chop, Dress and Mix my way to a refreshing salad by following these basic steps:

  • Start with a green base: I used spinach. Needed to get those green, greens in. “Cause… You know…
  • Get adventurous with grains and make it bright with fruits and veggies: Raspberries and red onions made my salad crazy bright, tasty, and pleasing to the eyeballs.
  • Toss in the flavor of Redpack tomatoes: Um… YEA! A whole can of those jammies!
  • Give it some crunch with nuts: Walnuts provided the crunch to this jammy
  • Power up with protein: And when I say protein I mean I cooked shrimp in garlic and butter
  • Dress it up with your favorite salad dressing: I made a raspberry lime walnut salad that will knock your summer moccasins off. Trust.
