Quesadilla Explosion Salad: SparkRecipes Un-Chained Recipe Contest Finalist
Very Good 4.2/5
(46 ratings)

Oh, Quesadilla Explosion Salad! How I love you!
I have eaten plenty of these at Chili's and was "Oh so surprised!" to see it listed as #2 on the 10 worst restaurant salads! Number T-O-O! Too much fat, Too many calories, Too many points!

It's a salad! How can it be so bad for you?

Something had to be done! This is my response. I have also created recipes for the various ingredients used in this salad. They are named as they appear in the list of ingredients. Feel free to use them or your own. Beware the nutrition data of this salad will change if you use another version.

Very Good 4.4/5

While chicken Parmesan is traditionally fried and served with pasta, this lighter version is delightful atop a hearty tomato and basil salad.

California Roll in a Bowl
Very Good 4.6/5
(97 ratings)

Delicious and easy, this salad combines all of my favorite sushi ingredients in one bowl! And, because it's based on a California roll, it uses fully cooked seafood.
