Do you ever find the perfect fish, chicken, or beef recipe on Pinterest and then have trouble coordinating a side with it? Personally, I think it should be the duty of every food blogger to suggest a side or two to compliment their protein recipes, but sometimes they slack on us. When I’m left to my own devices to accessorize my main dish, I usually gravitate towards a nice salad, and the one below is my favorite as it goes with almost anything. That’s why I named it the LBD or Little Black Dress Salad: it is versatile and its flavors and ingredients are classic.
My husband’s aunts in California make this salad often when the family gets together, usually with pasta, but I find that it also goes well with a great protein.
According to the forecast, it looks like things will warm up a bit around here next week so it’s time to do some grilling! Here’s what we’ll be eating this week:
Monday- Pureed Zucchini Soup with Little Black Dress Salad
Tuesday- Grilled Tuna Nicoise Salad
Thursday- Sriracha Glazed Chicken Skewers with Little Black Dress Salad
