Grilled Flatbread Salad

IMG_7269

It has been extremely hot here in South Jersey this past week, so I have been taking advantage of our grill (more than usual!).

You can make or buy your flatbread, but these were made using @halfbakedharvest recipe.  So easy and delicious!!  Thanks Tieghan!!

This flatbread salad is so refreshing!!

Ingredients:

  • 2 pieces of naan bread
  • 1-1/2 cups baby arugula
  • 2 hard boiled eggs,  sliced
  • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted and thinly sliced
  • 2 pieces cooked bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/2 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/3 cup crumbled goat cheese
  • kalamata olives
  • herb seasoning (I use BRAGG organic sprinkle)
  • Chipotle dressing (I use Simply Nature organic from Aldi)
  • Cool knife* -optional:)

Instructions:

Cook and peel eggs (these can be made ahead of time and refrigerated until ready to use).

Cook bacon until nice and crispy.  Transfer to lined rack to drain.  Once the bacon is cool enough to touch, crumble and put aside.

Pit, peel and thinly slice the avocado, and cut the grape tomatoes in half.

Grill flatbread for about 2 minutes on each side over indirect heat (giving the bread nice grill marks).

Once the flatbread is grilled,  start to assemble by spreading arugula on grilled naan,  then arrange other ingredients on top.  Sprinkle with herb seasoning (or you could use fresh herbs if you have them).  Drizzle with dressing.  Enjoy!!

I hope you make this, and if you do, tag me on Instagram @goodeatsbymimi.  I would love to hear from you and see your pictures:)!!

This amazing poppy-seed dressing is the perfect topping for fresh summer salads.  You could use it as a dip for fresh fruit and veggies.  Either way, this stuff is sooo good!!

I have an abundance of fresh lettuce growing in my garden along with a myriad of strawberries!  I made this delicious strawberry quinoa salad for lunch today.  I topped it with my mouthwatering dressing,  goat cheese, cucumber, and toasted almonds.  OH. SO. GOOD!!!

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup olive oil (72 grams)
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt (110 grams)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (22 grams)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar (22 grams)
  • 3 tablespoons of honey or agave (63 grams)
  • 2 teaspoons poppy-seeds (6 grams)
  • 1/8 teaspoon fine kosher salt (1 gram)

Place all ingredients in a medium bowl and whisk together until smooth.  Refrigerate unused dressing in a sealed container.  It will keep up to a week.

This dressing tastes so good on salads with fresh fruit!
