It doesn’t take much convincing for me to eat a salad. In fact, I eat one almost every day for lunch, but a salad with Heinen’s fresh seafood makes my love grow even stronger!

Lobster & Heirloom Tomato Salad

One of my favorite sandwiches, aside from po boys and muffulettas, is a lobster roll. So, to make my traditional salad more interesting (and delicious) I added big chunks of fresh, responsibly sourced lobster meat from Heinen’s Seafood Department to my leafy greens and coated it all in a lobster roll-inspired dressing.

It wouldn’t be a salad without veggie toppings, so I stopped by Heinen’s Produce Department and picked up an assortment of fresh heirloom tomatoes, cucumbers and lettuce from their incredible selection of Midwest-grown produce.

I also grabbed a few peaches because I couldn’t stand the thought of missing out on stone fruit season!

If you’re thinking about enhancing your salad repertoire this summer, use this recipe and fresh, in-season ingredients from Heinen’s to make it happen.
