This Thousand Island Power Salad Bowl with Creamy Mango and Poppy Seed Dressing not only is a veritable nutrition powerhouse, it’s also a total explosion of flavors and textures. Who ever said salads were boring?
I wasn’t too sure what to call this dish exactly… I mean, technically, it IS a salad, but it’s got so much going on, it definitely deserves to be attributed the “power” adjective. And, well, it’s served in a bowl, so…
But really, whatever its name is, this is definitely is a salad that qualifies as a complete meal, and one that is so loaded with flavors, textures, colors and wholesome goodness that you can feel totally comfortable serving it to potential guests, or even ordering off the menu at the restaurant. Well, as a matter of fact, I have: this is where I got the inspiration for this dish, although I sort took mine to the next level…
I must admit that for a salad, it takes a somewhat long time to make and does require a fair amount of prep, but that’s mainly because you have to cook the wheat berries and bake the sweet potatoes. None of that is really hard work, though, and all of it can be done ahead of time, too. And once that’s out of the way, the rest is just a breeze!.
What’s more, even if you decided to make it all in one go, it would only take you about the same time that it takes to cook the wheat berries, plus maybe a little more.
And trust me, the final dish is worth every second spent working on it, and then some!
