I’ve started something new on Instagram that I hope you’re following. Every Sunday, I post an Instagram recipe reel for something I ate during the week. It’s about a 30 second recipe video, so just some snippets about what’s landing on my plate and how I got there. They’ve been super fun to create. I love capturing the moments while the meal is coming together and then stringing it all together with music.
Most weeks, they’re recipes that I’ve already shared here but every once in a while, they’re brand-new recipes that I’ve never shared on No Thanks to Cake – – including this one!
This salad is inspired by one of my favorite salads from a Utah-based fast casual restaurant called Cafe Rio. Know that their salad comes with all sorts of things on it, but I simplify it to include pico, chicken, lettuce, and like three additional scoops of pico. It’s PERFECT that way, and is exactly what I’ve put together here.
Note: I use this chopper to make my pico. It’s SUCH a great shortcut when dicing anything. Highly recommend!
