pepper spiced steak salad

Take the following; spring salad mix, orange and red bell peppers, mushrooms, carrots, cucumber, green onion, red onion, tomato and a pan seared steak. Mix together with sea salt, pepper and a few tablespoons of California dressing. Enjoy. Oh so simple and oh so good.

If I'm not eating a protein free salad, 99% of the time it's going to be topped with roasted chicken or tuna. I can't remember the last time I ever topped a salad like this, and it made me realize how a perfectly cooked steak can make it so luxurious. Do you have a favorite protein for salads?

Do walnuts, feta and avacado count as a protein? That's my favourite. Oh, and throw in some cranberries too.

I am not that much of a salad fan but, in the few instances I am purchasing the ingredients to make one, most likely I would grab a roasted chicken on the way! ^_^

Sarah - That totally counts as a protein, and sounds delicious.

KimHo - Roasted chicken FTW! Grocery stores really hit the money when they decided to sell those daily roasted chickens. I was in a Superstore a few weeks back and saw quite the meal deal - buy a roast chicken and get a free baguette and container of deli salad ($10)

I must confess it's a combination/rip-off of two of my favourite dining out salads. Dadeo's apocado salad (apples, avocados in a honey mustard dressing) and Brewster's California salad (tossed greens with apples, avocado, cranberries walnuts and feta).
