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!

Place spinach in a bowl.

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!

What’s your favorite quick winter salad?

Giveaway sponsored by DeLallo Foods, but as always, all opinions are my own.

**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.

I am very excited for lettuce season. Here’s a fun post on our spring garden.

  1. I’m loving the Crisp toppings! And the scallops you cooked up with this salad, I never cook scallops at home, this looks so delicious and good for you!

  2. Zesty Feta sounds good to me..:)

  3. It’s so hard to choose! I love all of those salad toppings…but I’m thinking vibrant sounds amazing right now!

  4. I love salads. I am a fan of anything crisp and crunchy in a salad.

  5. Hmmm….I don’t know if I really have a “winter salad”, typically if I go for a salad for dinner I load it up with lots of chopped veggies and then some grilled chicken on top with ranch or my homemade sweet and sour dressing

  6. Every single one sounds amazing, I would probably try the Sharp first :)

  7. This is a time when I am attempting to be ‘a good girl’ and eat more greens to recover from the holidays. These sound like such a great way to ‘flavor things up.’
    The Crisp would be my first choice….the cheese and almonds….yum.

  8. I like to have mixed green with lots of arugula in the mix. Nuts, avocado and whatever fruit I can snag. Like my local market had fresh blueberries on sale.

  9. Authentic information at one place! I a simple and quick words for understanding that written here. Thanks for sharing with us!
