Cade loves spicy buffalo chicken wings, but I’d rather have sweet bbq or teriyaki wings. I don’t really do the whole spicy thing. But with Father’s Day quickly approaching I can’t help but want to push aside my own likes and think more about what would make Cade happy. This salad is totally everything I’ve learned about marriage.

Well, not everything. Because I’ve also learned that “none of us marry perfection; we marry potentialElder Dallin H. Oaks. That has been an amazing reminder for me. Totally doesn’t apply to this salad though, Cade says it already is perfection which of course I had to reply with, “So why don’t you marry it!” Because I’m 7 and ridiculous.

The point is, marriage is all about learning to be full of love. Love is unselfish, love is kind, love it giving and love is mindful. So I don’t like spicy, why should Cade have to live his life never having something he loves for dinner because I don’t like it? But because Cade is the most generous soul ever he would never ask me to do that which only makes me want to do things for him even more, hence the buffalo chicken salad with blue cheese dressing.

So we meet halfway. I don’t want a big plate of wings, but I love a good salad. This one is packed full of fresh veggies, something we both not only love and crave (we are really big on packing in as man fruits and veggies into our day as possible. You’d be surprised how much better you feel and how much less you crave the junk when you eat more fresh veggies) but it also helps to balance out that spicy chicken. Oh and the croutons! You guys, it’s Hawaiian Sweet Rolls we turned into sweet and salty, crunchy little croutons of heaven.

It’s not crazy spicy, but it definitely needs cool, crunchy veggies and a light and creamy dressing like this Marzetti Blue Cheese Dressing. We can’t be perfect in everything we do, but we love that certain food choices are the potential for a healthier life. That’s why we’ve become picky with salad dressings. We chose Marzetti because there aren’t any MSG’s, preservative free and it’s real food that tastes like I made it myself. It’s perfect with this salad. See, Cade gets what he wants, I get what I want, and we both appreciate each other for being mindful of the other. And seriously, if you take away one thing other than putting a little more effort into marriage, let it be that it’s the season for fresh veggies and we challenge you to make this the summer of fresh and wonderful. Marzetti dressings, fresh veggies and sunshine. Yup, that’s perfection.

    • Buffalo chicken is such a man favorite but I’m finding so many women feel the same. I need to make more recipes with it!

  • Oh man, I love their products. So many good ones it would be hard to choose. I’ve been wanting to try the cherry vinaigrette, it’s one I haven’t tasted yet. I love the lemon vinaigrette. My favourite Simply Dressed one is pomegranate. Strawberry runs a close second.

    I love this buffalo chicken. Honestly, nothing beat buffalo chicken in terms of flavour. It’s just perfection. Your photos are gorgeous. I want to reach though my screen.
