Crispy Onion Ring Topped Garden Salad
Guess what?!?! I see fresh GREEN grass out my window! I’ve also caught a glimpse of some Easter lillies popping up and on the not so pretty note, the birds have started their poo fest on our vehicles. That means it’s official. SPRING is here! Now, forget I mentioned bird poo — cause this post is about food. Ahem. Moving along…..
I crave salad all year long. I blame that on the fact that I don’t drink enough water, but anyhooo…when spring comes I’m ready to ditch the heavy and hearty meals from the winter and go with light and fresh. Salads are my favorite thing to enjoy but I love playing around and coming up with new ideas.
Have you ever had crispy onion rings on top of a fresh garden salad?! Wellll, let me just tell you….it is crazy good. I usually put sliced onions on my salad, and croutons. But this kind of knocked out 2 birds with one stone. There I am….talking about birds again. Gahh! But you get the onions and you get the crunch. I don’t think I can ever have a salad without onion rings again. Seriously. It’s THAT good.
Below is what I used but the next time, I’ll be changing it up again and adding some fresh crumbled feta cheese, grilled chicken and sliced hard boiled eggs. Oh Em Gee. That’s the wonderful thing about a homemade salad…you can do it any old way you like! Just don’t forget the Alexia Crispy Onion Rings on top ya’ll!
- Salad greens
- baby carrots
- grape tomatoes
- shredded cheese (any kind you like)
- salad dressing (any kind you like)
- baked crispy Alexia onion rings (3-5 rings for a single salad)
- Combine all of the ingredients in a salad bowl and top with crispy baked onion rings and dressing. Bake the onion rings according to the package directions. Enjoy!
We grabbed some Alexia crinkle cut fries for the husband and little man, sweet potato fries for me and then the crispy onion rings were just a toss up. Usually my husband and I fight over those. Like, I steal them off the baking sheet while his head’s turned. (oops!)
I love the Alexia onion rings because they’re breaded with panko. Heckkkkk yeahhhh baby!!! You know what that means?! Super crunchy! All of the Alexia products are made with natural ingredients. You can tell a difference. Their fries are so fresh and taste like you cut them yourself and roasted them in the oven. Their motto is “Farm to Flavor!”
We found our Alexia fries and onion rings at Walmart, in the freezer section. Just look for the “Potatoes” signage in the freezer aisle to locate them. Load them in your cart and take them home. You’ll be happy you did. Yum! Check out these awesome Spring into Flavor recipes at Alexia and visit them on Facebook and Pinterest for more fun, news and promotions!
