This salad itself miiiiight look a wee bit familiar.

I took my favorite broccoli slaw salad mix and topped it with this garlic avocado salad dressing instead of the sweet orange vinaigrette I served it with a couple months ago. But instead of just having a lunch of cranberries, spinach and pumpkins seeds, I added English cucumbers and chicken into the mix! To make a salad the size of my head. Actually, this bowl is way bigger than my head (both literally and figuratively speaking)โ€”which makes it extra delicious.

Anyone else just love a giant salad? Sometimes I feel a bit ridiculous eating a salad out of what is supposed to be a vegetable serving bowl. But when you think about it, the whole point of this salad was to get a bunch of servings of vegetables, so in a backwards way I suppose it actually makes a LOT of sense. Ya follow?

I also happen to think salads just taste better when they’re basically served on a giant platter. Makes it seem more like it came from a restaurantโ€”and lets you get a much better distribution of toppings and dressings. When you eat out of a small, narrow bowl too much lettuce goes untouched at the bottom. I’m not about to finish my lunch feeling like a rabbit, so…giant bowls for the win!

I think I ate this salad 80% of the days I was on maternity leave. I even went back to Costco a couple of times JUST for the broccoli slaw mix alone. It’s close to the best food ever. (Don’t worry, peanut butter and chocolate rank above it. I ain’t crazy, y’all.) And paired with grilled chicken and this creamy avocado dressing, you’ve got a fiercely delicious lunch on your hands!

I know that sometimes avocado based recipes can go brown quickly. This dressing is best used within a day or two, so I’d make this much of a quantity if I were serving it for multiple meals or making it for dinner. If you want to make this for just ONE salad, you could roughly use the following amounts:

  • 1 tablespoon avocado
  • 1/2 tablespoon Greek yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • dash garlic salt
  • salt and pepper to taste
