SLAM Salad

After the birth of my third baby, a mama from my workout group, SLAM (Sweat Like a Mother), brought me this salad. My family instantly fell in love with the bold and contrasting flavors of dill, sundried tomatoes, and lemon. It’s become a monthly meal plan staple in our house. The salad is a complete meal with protein, veggies, and fat. Plan it for a night you can make a fresh batch of sourdough for a perfect pairing.

As the name implies, it’s a SLAM every time!

SLAM Salad

  • 1 32 ounce container of spinach
  • 1 cup shredded cooked chicken
  • 1/2 cup (approx 6-8 slices), cooked and crumbled bacon
  • 2 avocados, sliced
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese
  • 1 8oz jar sun dried tomatoes in herbs and oil (I like California Sun Dry brand julienne cut. This ingredient is key, as the oil doubles as the salad dressing! If you can’t find julienne cut, you will need to cut up the large halves of tomato.)
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts
  • 2 lemons, sliced in wedges
  • Fresh dill


Lightly chop spinach to break up large leaves. Layer shredded chicken, crumbled bacon, avocados, feta, sundried tomatoes, pine nuts, and chopped fresh dill. 

Arrange the lemon wedges along the perimeter of the salad to be used to squeeze fresh lemon juice on each serving.

Drizzle 2-3 Tablespoons of the oil from the sun dried tomatoes jar on the top of the salad before serving. Enjoy immediately!
