Dole recently asked me if I’d like to host a salad party!
I quickly took them up on their offer and couldn’t wait to have a party! Since we’re about to have this baby, I knew I had to do it quickly and it was the perfect opportunity to get some of our family together as a last ‘hoorah!’ before the baby comes.
Since we have some picky eaters in the family, having a salad party is a great way to please everyone’s palates. It also allows them to be creative and make their own ultimate salad!
I decided to make it very casual and we grilled an assortment of meats. We had all organic chicken, steak, and salmon! And of course, we had a number of different toppings so that our guests could make their own salad…just how they like it! 😀
We also had garlic bread as a side and of course some brownies for dessert!
The toppings I chose to serve were:
- green bell peppers
- red onions
Of course you can choose as many different toppings as you want to serve. I just went for all fresh veggies and fruit! 😀
I decided to make it an easy buffet style to serve up this great lunch. I don’t have a lot of stamina any more being so pregnant, so this was a perfect way to serve and make for easy clean up!
Hosting a Dole Salad Party is a simple and easy way to enjoy your friend’s and family’s company. Easy for the hostess/host and fun for your guests!
Since I was so ravenous (being hungry all the time when pregnant is hard work), I made my plate full of salad and topped with some steak and salmon (surf and turf?) and added tomatoes, carrots, green bell pepper, and pear. So delish!
What kind of salad would you have made up?
I’ll definitely be hosting another salad party after the baby is born. It’s a great way to eat healthy and have some fun with friends!

I’ve been eating a lot of salads lately (trying to eat low carb to lose weight), so my average meal can be described by your post very well :), with the xception of my scrambled aggs breakfast.
