I nearly did a backflip when I received the opportunity to talk about MorningStar Farms products because they are a staple in my home. They have so many products that can inspire delicious meatless meals, and for my kids who hate the texture of meat, they are wonderful.

This Chik Patties® salad with easy homemade Italian dressing is so easy to make, and the addition of the Chik Patties® strips over the fresh salad greens really transforms an average salad into a filling and nutritious lunch.

For me, the key to staying on track with my health and fitness goals is to stay satisfied, and MorningStar Farms meatless products definitely gets the job done.

I hope you enjoy this delicious Meatless Monday recipe!
