5-Minute White Cheddar Almond Apple Scallops Salad

I’ve been eating healthier after the holidays, and it takes discipline for planning healthy meals, changing my “snacking” habits, and getting back in the swing of eating more salads! I cannot wait until March, when our garden will be at it’s finest, at least for early spring lettuce!

“Crisp.”

Salads will be on the daily menu during the spring, which is one of my favorite seasons of the year. For now, let me introduce you to DeLallo’s newest SaladSavors® flavor: Crisp.

5-Minute White Cheddar Almond Apple Scallops Salad

This DeLallo SaladSavors® Crisp White Cheddar (toasted almonds, apple chips, and shredded sharp cheddar cheese), is the perfect topping combination to compliment a big bowl of spinach and warm scallops.

5-minute salad.

My entire family went crazy over the delicious dinner I cooked, **Smoked Alaskan Scallops, which took 2 minutes, and a couple more minutes to make the salad, which is why I call it my 5-Minute Salad!

Add the SaladSavors® toppings.

In a hot sauté pan, cook the scallops for about 2 minutes! Don’t overcook scallops, as you want them to be light and fresh!

Toss the salad with your favorite dressings. Dish the salad onto individual plates, divide up the scallops, and serve!

It’s January, folks. Time for salads!

**I keep stocked in my freezer Smoked Alaskan Scallops from Anderson Seafoods for quick meals – for the family and for guests. These scallops are small plump, moist, smoky, buttery, and sweet, all in one perfect bite – ready to eat right out of the package. It doesn’t take long to defrost them, then saute for about 1 minute! They are harvested directly from the ocean, shucked on deck, then immediately frozen on the boat to capture their quality.
