Sonny's BBQ Salad Bar (my salad)



Introduction

They didn't have "low-fat" Italian dressing on their salad bar. The only "low-fat" or "low-cal" dressing they had was ranch. I recently went vegan, so I didn't go there. Plus, I've never enjoyed the texture of "low-fat" or "low-cal" ranch.

It was a very delicious salad, very diverse & very healthy (esp. if they'd had "low-fat" Italian; next time I'll know and carry my own). They have definitely stepped their salad bar up a notch from a few years ago. It was crap back then. No spinach, chickpeas, whole olives, beets or three bean salad. They also have raisins now, but I didn't notice them until I was leaving. =( Too bad, so sad! I know now, though! =) I hope you love it!

Since I went vegan, I knew I'd be able to eat 'something,' but wasn't certain of variety. I had a sweet potato w/ about 1 serving of the salad (total is about 2.5 servings, I took a 'doggy box' home). Great deal, too. I ordered the sweet potato and we got the salad w/ my hubby's dinner for only 99c. My entire meal, which was very filling and healthy, was only $2.98. The salad bar alone is $7.29 & $8.29 if you add a side of meat for your salad! Now, go to Sonny's and get you one! Was the best eating out I've ever done!

Ingredients

    MAIN SALAD

    Mushrooms, large (approx 2 1/4 large)
    Iceberg lettuce (approx 1/4 cup)
    Spinach, fresh (approx 25 whole leaves, not baby)
    Grape tomatoes (approx 10)
    Green bell pepper slices/rings, 5 very thin
    Black olives, whole, pitted (approx 20) (I just love them!!)
    Chickpeas/Garbanzo beans (approx 1/2 cup)
    Cucumber, thick sliced, w/ peel (approx 10-12 slices)
    Italian salad dressing (about 1/4 cup; 1 ladle)

    ON THE SIDE

    Pickled beets (approx 1/4-1/2 cup; ~ 5-6 slices)
    Three bean salad (approx 1/3-1/2 cup)

Directions

No cooking required.

Just visit Sonny's BBQ's salad bar or another fine, delicious salad bar (Ruby Tuesday is great & Sweet Tomatoes (East US) / Souplantation (West US) is a super excellent & extremely diverse!!).

I filled my plate full of salad. I put my beets & 3 bean salad on a separate, only filling it about 1/3 of the way. I ate about 1/2 of the beets & 3 bean salad & a little more than 1/2 of the salad. I got a box (For salad & sides; I was going to work so I took it with me) and I topped it off & filled up the box w/ more of everything except for the sides & dressing!

So, I ate about 1 serving of what I'd call approx. 2 1/2 servings total (both combined) that evening.

I never got around to eating it at work, so I ate it for lunch the next day. I just picked out the few things that were soggy, but there wasn't much dressing left so it wasn't much! That sitting was about 1 1/2 servings.

The whole thing (plate + box) was probably more like 2 servings but I didn't eat it 1/2 and 1/2 so it'd be harder to figure out for the nutrition tracker!
