Sometimes nothing hits the spot like a handmade, freshly tossed salad. The crisp greens and juicy chicken have a way of blending together to make the perfect meal. It’s satisfying without being too much. You can feel good about yourself when eating it, and it won’t set any New Year diet resolutions into a tailspin.
At eegee’s, you’ll find a number of salads made to order, so whether you want it as lunch, dinner, or as a side to go along with your grinder, eegee’s has several crispy chicken salads with your name on it.
There’s just one thing. It’s possible to make the salad even better! By using some of these salad ideas, you can turn a fantastic salad into the best salad ever! Here are a few tips, suggestions, and hacks for turning your crispy chicken salad into the ultimate salad recipe.
First, you’ll want to start off with the right crispy chicken salad. At eegee’s you’ll find several to choose from. There’s the Farmhouse Ranch Chicken Salad and the Southwest Chipotle Ranch Chicken Salad, plus the Chopped Italian, Classic Chef and Side Salad you could easily add chicken to for an additional charge.
With each salad, you’ll receive crispy chicken that has been cooked to perfection with your choice of dressing. This is where you can get creative. Sure, you could order the Southwest Chipotle Ranch Chicken Salad with the chipotle ranch dressing that it comes with, but what if you’re feeling a buffalo ranch dressing instead? Order it that way, no questions asked! Or, order the Classic Chef (with chicken) with our world-famous original ranch dressing. There’s no right or wrong here.
Of course, you can always mix and match dressings and sample the different salads, as that’s the absolute best way to determine which salad starter is right for you.
Who hasn’t snuck a few potato chips into their sandwich before? There’s just something about that added crunch, isn’t there? Well, who’s to say you can’t add another side menu item to your salad? You might take your salad from good to “wow” with this simple combination.
One thing we love to do is toss in some French fries. Croutons are fine and all, but with the award-winning French fries, you’ll have that added crunch and flavor explosion to go along with your salad.
But why stop with just the fries? Why not order some Ranch fries with bacon bits? Then add that to your salad and it’s next level. There are plenty of French fry flavors as well, so you can mix and match to the heart’s content until you find that perfect combination of deliciousness.
There are no rules when it comes to salads. Do you want it to be just lettuce and chicken? Order it like that. Maybe you want it to go heavy on the cucumbers and cheese but you’re not a fan of tomatoes? Leave it out. While the crispy chicken salads have set ingredients, the salads are not pre-made, so if there’s something you want to be added or not included (especially due to a food allergy), just say so when ordering and the salad will be made specifically for you.
There’s no reason to skip over the onions and end up with a bowl full of unwanted onions when you’re all done. Who wants to sift through their salad to avoid eating something they don’t like anyway? You know what is right for you, so order the salad how you prefer and let your local eegee’s team whip it up for you.
There’s nothing like enjoying a delicious salad in the comfort of your own home. Maybe you are hitting the drive-through after a long day of work and all you want is a recliner and your television. At home, you can make the salad that much better with extra ingredients.
Perhaps you like to add a spicy kick to it. Diced jalapenos or even some Serrano peppers, that bring the heat but offer a slightly different flavor. Or maybe you’re someone that likes to mix salad dressings, or there is a particular salad dressing you absolutely need to have. You can add these to your salad to enhance your crispy chicken salad. Nobody said you have to eat a salad the way it’s generally prepared at the restaurant. Enhance it for your own taste buds by adding ingredients at home.
Beyond adding peppers or salad dressings, you might want to consider adding some crunch, like with sunflower seeds or walnuts. These are great ways to up your protein without going heavy on the calories or saturated fats. If you are on a diet and want to skip out on the unnecessary calories while staying full longer, tossing in nuts and seeds is a great option.
On the other hand, maybe you want to enhance the chill factor of your salad. It could be the middle of summer and you want something cool and refreshing to eat. If that’s the case, you can add your favorite fresh fruits to the salad.
Strawberries and blueberries are popular, but you can add anything, like diced peaches or mango chunks. Maybe you want to turn your crispy chicken salad into an Asian-themed salad. If that’s the case, have some wonton strips on hand and your favorite salad dressing. Options are limitless and even though you might order the same salad every day, you can craft the salad so it tastes different every single time.
Is there a specific ingredient on your eegee’s salad that you just can’t get enough of? If so, why not ask for extra? It’s your salad and there are no rules. If you want extra tomatoes or onions, by all means, order extra tomatoes or onions.
There are so many food options to consider, so don’t be bashful. Get those extra toppings and take your already great crunchy chicken salad to the next level. (There may be a small fee for additional ingredients, so make sure to inquire about it with the staff at eegee’s if you have any concerns).
When was the last time you stopped at an eegee’s? Whenever it was, your local restaurant is calling your name. So whether you decide to order a salad for delivery or you are craving a grinder with a frozen eegee, there’s likely an eegee’s restaurant a short drive from your home.
With something for the entire family, you’ll satisfy everyone’s cravings for an affordable price. So, what are you waiting for? Get on out there and try the ultimate salad combination, the perfect grinder, or a tasty sub today.
