Upgraded BBQ & Black Pepper Toscano Chopped Salad

 

We love the convenience of TJ's delicious salad kits! But to turn them into complete, well-balanced meals, it's important to "upgrade" them with a few key ingredients.

For this recipe, we’re using their BBQ & Black Pepper Toscano Chopped Salad as the base. It’s a crunchy mix of green & red cabbage, carrots, broccoli stalks, and kale tossed with cornbread croutons, Toscano cheese, and BBQ sweet onion dressing.

The dressing is sweet & flavorful, and the cornbread croutons add a nice crunch.
