Ribbon Salad with Shredded Chicken

Ribbon Salad. LOADED with veggies! Recipe at The Tasty Fork

I have two exciting things I need to share with all of you. First off, I’m starting a new recipe series on Fridays called Family Recipe Friday. I’ve gotten some recipes from my readers about their favorite recipes and it inspired me to start this new series. I’ll be sharing the family recipe, taking photos and crediting the creator! If you’d like me to share a family recipe of yours, please email me at mkearly614@gmail.com. I’m pooling recipes for the next few weeks and would love to get more readers involved.

On Saturday, I’ll be co-hosting a Google+ Blog Hop. Have you signed up for Google+ yet? I like it more than Facebook. It’s a lot easier to share information and you can filter who you want to see what you’ve posted…. I’m getting the hang of it, but I’m looking to grow my circles. I hope you’ll come by this Saturday and link up your G+ profile.

I’ve been on a health kick lately. How about you?? I’m heading to Florida in two months for a girls trip. I’m a total eater, so I’ve been trying to cut back on the calories and make my meals healthy yet still totally delicious.

#Healthy #Recipe #easymeal Ribbon Salad with Shredded Chicken. New Recipe @ The Tasty Fork

This Ribbon Salad with Shredded Chicken falls into that category. It’s loaded with vegetables – carrots, zucchini, yellow squash, onions and spinach. The chicken adds additional protein and it helps to keep me from going to the pantry to load up on evening chocolate. The dressing is made simple ingredients but packs a lot of flavor.

Ribbon Salad can be a dinner entree or a great side salad. I really love to easy it was to make and by using a “Y” shaped peeler, you’ll have all of your veggies shredded in no time.

What are some of your favorite healthy meals??
