I need Help.

I try to eat salads most days for lunch. While at my local grocery store {which doesn't even compare to Publix--I am counting down the days until I return to my beloved} I picked up some Tyson "Southwest" Style grilled chicken strips to add to my salad. A little lettuce, some black olives, low fat cheese and the chicken were easy to throw together but I needed a dressing. In walks the best Salsa ever. Target's salsa is sooooo good. Now, I'm not a 3 alarm chick when it comes to my salsa, I like it mild (and sweet--peach salsa--yum!) so Target's Archer Farm's Original Thick and Chunky Salsa: Mild does the trick.

I mixed the Salsa with a spoonful of low fat sour cream and a few shakes of dry Ranch Dressing and viola! I created a salad with dressing that I have now eaten for 6 days straight.

{You'd never know that I'm a chick that actually likes change. As a teenager I would move the furniture in my bedroom around almost monthly...I'd do it now with the furniture in our house if it didn't drive Dr. Chick crazy.} But I digress, I need your help.

What are your salad (as a meal) and dressing ideas...obviously, I'm in a rut and need some great (healthy) salad ideas and would love to hear yours.
Bring those crunchy lettuce induced recipes on!

*that is not dust on the top to the salsa, it is condensation, pinkie swear*

Big Changes for the Chick

Monogram Chick will soon be high-tailing back to the southern soil! In about 3 weeks Dr. Chick will be finished with his residency and we will be moving onto the next chapter of our lives {southern style}. In order for this chick's tail feathers to remain unruffled,
the Monogram Chick website will be closed
June 1st-June 14th.
Pretty, pretty, your orders before we close on Monday, June 1st!

We are beyond excited about the move and beyond nervous about closing up shop for 2 weeks; never before has the Chick taken such a break. I can only trust that y'all will be here when we return on Monday, June 15th in our new studio on that heavenly Georgia clay.
Until then, order away my friends, order away!

Look for a GIVEAWAY coming this week!
