This is a sponsored post written on behalf of Samsung Home Appliances. All opinions are my own. With a family of 8, it seems like someone is always in our kitchen eating and the most of the appliances appliances never turn off. Its definitely the busiest room in the house. Hunger definitely makes people do strange things and I’m pretty sure we’ve even had fights break out
Summer is here and that means it’s time for lots of amazing salads filled with fresh fruits and veggies. Litehouse Dressing sponsored today’s post so we can share our favorite twist on the classic cobb salad. This Summer Cobb Salad has all the things you love about Cobb salad with the addition of some fun summer veggies.
I can not get enough of fresh salads during the summer months and the classic cobb salad has always been one of my favorites. I thought it would be nice to lighten it up a bit by adding in some of my favorite summer veggies.
I’ve always heard that the cobb salad came about as a impromptu combination of leftovers when a hungry restaurant owner wanted to throw together a snack. The history is fitting because that’s how 99% of the salads are made in my house — chop up any veggies in the fridge, throw in some leftover chicken, mix it up and serve it up.
The end result is always perfection even if you never quite know what you are going to get before you start digging through the fridge.
Anything goes when it comes to salads.
The one place I do draw the line is my salad dressing.
I live in a house with 3 teenage boys. And when I say they eat everything, I mean absolutely everything. Not only do they eat anything they can get their hands on, like chips, every last bit of fruit, any frozen food that they can just pop in the microwave, and every granola bar that comes home from the store, they also constantly ask for wings, specifically these Mango Habanero Wings. I can’t blame them. They are amazing.
My best friend and I used to constantly go to eat out after school at this little Chinese buffet down the street from our high school. Even after we graduated and went to college, we still went out once a week to catch up…at first. Then we realized how much college was costing us…and how small our budgets were.
Not wanting to give up on tradition, we decided to stay in and make our favorites at home. And we didn’t have to put real pants on to leave the house? Sold. Easiest decision of my life. A really delicious one too! This recipe for Homemade General Tso’s Chicken tastes just like our favorite takeout but you can make it for a fraction of the cost and you get to control the ingredients.
