Garden Salad & Waffle Croutons #EggoWaffleOff

April 7, 2013

Well, today is the last post of the Eggo Waffle Off recipe competition. I've had so much fun this week sharing a bunch of new waffle recipes with you all! I hope you've enjoyed it as much as I have.

This garden salad was really delicious. It had lots of tasty veggies, my favorite black beans to fill you up, and the buttery Eggo waffles in place of traditional croutons - even my kids liked this. Those amazing waffles and their little nooks and crannies!! It catches the dressing and really makes the flavors pop when you take a bite! I used ranch dressing, but feel free to use whatever dressing you have on hand. 

Garden Salad & Waffle Croutons
adapted from Dishing with Leslie

3 Eggo Homestyle waffles, double toasted
3 cups spring mix
15oz can corn, drained
15oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
2.8 oz jar real bacon pieces (or 5 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled)
ranch dressing

Chop up waffles and place in large salad bowl, reserving 1/2 cup. Add spring mix, corn, black beans, bacon, and tomatoes. Toss ingredients well. To serve, place salad in individual bowls, and top with a handful of waffle croutons and ranch dressing. Serve immediately.

  1. What a great idea to use the waffles as croutons! I bet they taste awesome in the salad. I'll have to try it!

  2. What a great idea! I made a pinterest board and tried to pin as many of the CWO recipes as I could find. Fun week, it was also fun getting to find other blogs ; )

  3. Love this idea. What a great way to use waffles and they would add a little sweetness.
