I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite things to eat in the summer is a good salad. I like a lighter option in the heat, but still something with enough substance that it’s filling. I eat a salad almost every day, and my husband and I are constantly trying to come up with creative new salad combinations. This one was something a little bit different that we both really enjoyed!
I actually made a big batch of it to bring to a party, and it was a hit there too. With all the burgers, hot dogs, and chips that are around at summer gatherings, it’s nice to have a salad option too. I kept the Litehouse dressing in a cooler so it would stay nice and fresh for the party. I like to serve this salad with both the chunky bleu cheese and the homestyle ranch dressing so people have options. I prefer bleu cheese with this salad myself but I know it can be acquired taste for some, so homestyle ranch is another great option!
When it comes to salad dressings you can toss or drizzle, but the most important thing is the quality of your dressing. That’s why I love Litehouse dressings – they are made with fresh ingredients like real blue cheese! If you’re looking for Litehouse dressings at your grocery store check the produce section – it’s kept in the refrigerated section, where real dressing should be. I have to say, it’s pretty unappealing to have a room temperature salad dressing on a nice fresh salad, especially on a warm summer day. Fresh, refrigerated, and delicious dressings is where it’s at! #SeetheLite
- Arugula mix (or your choice of salad base)
- Litehouse chunky bleu cheese dressing (or homestyle ranch if you prefer)
Start my cooking the bacon. You can always leave the bacon out if you’re looking for a vegetarian dish, but I prefer it to make things a little more filling. Pat away any extra grease and crumble bacon.
Prep your salad ingredients by slicing tomatoes and pears. Crumble pecans if you prefer them that way, or leave them whole.
Assemble salad. Start with the arugula mix and add bacon, tomatoes, pears, and pecans.
Toss with Litehouse chunky bleu cheese dressing, or drizzle it onto your salad. Enjoy!
