5-Ingredient Salads

Using ingredients you likely have on hand already, these entrée salads are easy, quick, and delicious. Many of these recipes call for homemade dressings that push the ingredient list over five items, but you can use a bottled dressing with similar flavors instead to save time and effort.

Chicken BLT Salad with Creamy Avocado–Horned Melon Dressing

The salad itself couldn't be much simpler―chicken (use leftovers if you've got 'em), lettuce, tomato, and bacon―but it yields tons of flavor. The unique and exotic dressing is worth the effort, but bottled ranch or blue cheese are fine too.

Pantry Checklist:
 

  • Cooked chicken breast
  • Tomato
  • Romaine salad mix
  • Center-cut bacon
Prep: 7 minutes
