Ruby Tuesday Inspired Salad Recipes

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Ruby Tuesday. All opinions are 100% mine.

I am salad obsessed, always on the lookout for a great salad either at home or away. I’m sure there are quite a few other salad lovers out there who would LOVE to get a new recipe to try out on their own. I’ve got three great ones! No, they were amazing salads! Salads I would eat over and over and over again!!

Recently, my husband and I were out at Ruby Tuesday to grab a bite that I didn’t have to cook, and without any children. It was amazing. When we walked in, I noticed that they had re-done their Garden Bar Find out More about Ruby Tuesday’s All New Endless Garden Bar and I was really impressed! I was in the mood to get a burger, but after seeing their new Garden Bar, I changed my mind. They now have over 55 ingredients! Do you know how many amazing salads you can make with over 55 ingredients? Quite a few!…

No matter what I wanted walking in, I now wanted a taste-explosion salad. A little bit of everything!

Three Salad Recipes inspired by the New Garden Bar at Ruby Tuesday. The first recipe I want to share is:

Mediterranean Cobb Salad

Ingredients:

  • Field greens and baby spinach
  • smoked ham chunks
  • red and green bell peppers strips
  • grape tomatoes
  • diced cucumbers
  • roasted corn
  • green peas
  • beets
  • black olive slices
  • edamame
  • banana peppers
  • sliced mushrooms
  • shredded cheese
  • crispy onions
  • crispy parmesan chips
  • crumbled bacon
  • croutons
  • Italian Herb Vinaigrette

Trust me, this will satisfy all those delicious salad cravings you might have. It has a little bit of sweet, spicy, salty, and savory all mixed together on one plate. But that was not the only salad recipe that was inspired by that night (because the Garden Bar is endless…many, many trips…many, many different salad options!)

Our Second Salad Recipe:

Taco Explosion Salad

Ingredients:

  • chopped romaine lettuce and baby spinach
  • grape tomatoes
  • diced cucumbers
  • bell pepper strips
  • black beans
  • diced onions
  • roasted corn
  • pico de gallo
  • sliced olives
  • banana peppers
  • shredded cheese
  • crispy onions
  • chopped bacon
  • crispy pita chips
  • Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette Dressing

Ok, so MAYBE it was my second trip through the Garden Bar, and MAYBE I was already filling up, but I couldn’t resist eating every single last bite! The ingredients were so fresh and delicious. They also have 8 different dressings made in-house every day!

My husband is not a salad bar kind of guy, and I actually had to talk him into getting the garden bar alongside his chips and Spinach Artichoke Dip instead of getting yet another burger (what he gets at many of the restaurants we frequent.) He always complains that salad bars don’t have enough protein to satisfy him. But he was wrong! There were some great protein choices that were included in the Garden Bar (and you can always add even MORE protein choices to their Garden Bar at a small additional cost).

I don’t think his salad looked as pretty as mine, but he assured me that it was even MORE delicious and satisfying than my salad was, even if it looked a little rough around the edges.

Third Salad Recipe:

Protein Boost Salad

Ingredients:

  • chopped romaine lettuce
  • grape tomatoes
  • shredded cheddar cheese
  • shredded six cheese blend
  • olive slices
  • chopped cucumbers
  • fresh carrot slices
  • sliced mushrooms
  • smoked ham chunks
  • bacon chunks
  • crumbled hard boiled egg
  • crispy onions
  • croutons
  • Italian Vinaigrette Dressing

His salad definitely satisfied that protein craving and got him some much needed veggies! You can make these salads at home with these great recipes, or just stop in to Ruby Tuesday and make it without all the crazy prep! I’d love to hear your salad recipe that you come up with when you check out the new Garden Bar at Ruby Tuesday!

  1. I love Ruby Tuesday salad bar. However, I do not like the new thousand island dressing recipe. Please give us the choice of the new and old thousand island recipe!!

  2. I am a salad a day kind of girl and I am always looking for ways to spice up my regular routine salad with new ingredients! Thank you so much for sharing these jazzy options with me! I can’t wait to try them!

  3. I will have to get the ingredients I need to make the Taco Explosion Salad. These look so delicious and easy to make.

  4. One thing I do love about Ruby Tuesday was the salad bar. They had the best thousand island dressing and brown croutons.

  5. I actually have to be suckered into a salad. It needs to be interesting enough to keep my attention, and then I won’t feel obligated to eat it.

    And, if you add bacon, Jim Gaffigan said it best. “Now it’s not salad. It’s a game of ‘Find the bacon!'”

  6. Love that you are creating recipe ideas for a copy cat Ruby Tuesday inspired salad. There are so many, hard to choose just one salad that is inspired by Ruby Tuesday salads!

  7. W have a Ruby Tuesdays, but I have never eaten there. I may have too suggest it now! The salads look delicious and so does everything else. I like your review!
