warm winter salad with honey mustard dressing

ready for a recipe from the health nut?

well you’re in for a good one. i got the idea for this from here. of course, i had to adapt it because i never follow directions, but this was more of an idea than an actual recipe. i also made my dressing a little thinner. you can choose which one you like best.

i loved this because i had been craving salads for like a week before i found this. but every day that i had one planned, i would be freezing cold at lunch and want to eat something warm. that’s what make this great. cool crispy lettuce, and warm meat, veggies, and an egg.

i never even thought about eating an egg on salad {besides hard boiled} and it was delicious! give it a try, i think you will like this!

warm winter saladwarm winter salad {egg}dressing:

1/8cup honey
1/8 cup yellow mustard {me} or dijon {original}
1/4 olive oil
pepper {fresh ground if you have it}

1. mix all ingredients thoroughly {and anytime you use it again, it will separate}.
2. store in the fridge for up to two weeks.
3. if it’s too think, add more oil. i like mine more dressing-y than vinaigrette-y. so this is mine. go to the link up there for more vinaigrette-y.


1 tbsp coconut oil or olive oil
2 chicken breasts, cubed or sliced {however you like it}
1 bell pepper or 4-6 minis {i like the sweet minis}, sliced
3 green onions, sliced
salt, pepper, garlic, lemon pepper {not good with amounts, use what you like! …wink…}

4-6 small mushrooms, sliced

4 eggs

romaine lettuce

1. heat oil and add the next four ingredients. cook til meat is finished and set aside.
2. saute mushrooms and set aside.
3. fry the egg over medium {unless you don’t like runny eggs, then just go solid}.
4. top lettuce and spinach with the warm ingredients right before serving {otherwise the lettuce might wilt if you put them on much earlier}.
5. drizzle on the good stuff!

serves 4.

and there you have it! A delicious, unique, not.so.cold.and.summery salad!

    • Tehehe. That is my worst mistake. It’s usually getting on pinterest when I’m hungry. Huge uh-oh! Haha I’m glad you like it. I was hesitant to try, but I love it. I will have an egg on my salad every time now! Probably. You should definitely try it! And if you do, let me know what you think! I need food critique!
