Friday Night Salad

I know “salad” is probably not the first thing that springs to mind when you hear “Friday night dinner”; however, that was the first thing that came to mine. Maybe that says too much about my current state of affairs, and you may want to make this on a boring-ol’ Wednesday night, but trust me: it’s good.

The Salad With the Most-est

Enough for 2 entree-sized salads


  • Spring mix–used a whole bag for two salads
  • Bacon–two strips, one per salad.
  • Dried cranberries
  • Almonds, coarsely chopped
  • Pear, sliced (used less than one who pear for two salads)
  • Goat cheese (less than an ounce per salad)
  • Lite honey mustard salad dressing (it’s not hard to make, but I love Newman’s)
  • 2 eggs, poached


  • Cook the bacon until it’s as crispy as you like.
  • Cut the bacon into bite-sized pieces. Mix with the salad greens, almonds, cranberries and pear.
  • Lightly drizzle dressing onto salad. Sprinkle with goat cheese and top with poached egg.
