A salad?! On Sauce + Style?! I know it's a bit shocking to see something on the healthy side pop up here, but being on a teeny tiny cleanse inspired me to up my salad game. With bacon of course.
Normally I am NOT a salad person (as in I avoid it at all costs), but when a salad combines all my favorite things, I'll change my stance on it momentarily. This BBQ Ranch Chopped Salad is the perfect example of what'll get me in a salad-eating mood. Yes, this salad is loaded up with some healthy veggies, but there's also bacon and a BBQ ranch dressing that is going to blow your freaking mind.
Seriously, this salad is so good you'll actually find yourself CRAVING it. So wrong, it's gotta be right ;) am I right?

INSTRUCTIONS: In a small bowl, stir together ingredients for the dressing. Set aside. Add mixed greens, tomatoes, garbanzo beans, bell pepper, avocado, and cucumber to a cutting board. Chop all the ingredients up well. Add chopped ingredients to a bowl. Stir in cheddar, sunflower seeds and bacon. Top with dressing and toss to coat. Serve.

Another work week, another boring lunch packed away in the office refrigerator that you are dreading eating... We've all been there, haven't we? You get sucked into the monotony of easy "healthy" lunches and before you know it, your work lunches are no longer a blissful break. They are a sad way to attempt to fuel up and survive the rest of a crazy work day. Honestly, I believe you deserve a better lunch. Lunch breaks should be about stuffing your face with delicious homemade food and temporarily forgetting all the to-dos on your list for the rest of the day. There's no work, no kids, no distractions - just time for you to eat and enjoy the company of co-workers, or even just yourself (hey, we all need that breathing room some days!). Even if you can only spare 30 minutes, those 30 minutes should be special, right? What makes anything more special than bacon? Nothing. Bacon is the ingredient you need to not only get through the work day, but also to actually enjoy your lunch. With back-to-school craziness coming up, you need some easy lunch ideas in your back pocket to get your bacon fix with at work.
