Easy Garden Fresh Salad Topped w/ Chicken Cranberry Meatballs

This evening I wasn't hungry for a big dinner since I had leftover Greek Style Meatloaf for lunch. As I rummaged around in the fridge, I spotted the big container of spring mix salad I had in there...and considered just having a big salad for dinner. Right beside the spring mix was a package of "Kickin Cranberry Chicken Meatballs" I picked up at Costco this past weekend to try. They have both cranberry and chipotle in them (2 of my favorite flavors) and it sounded like an interesting combination. I figured I could probably make something similar myself, but wanted to give these a try to see how I might want to season and flavor them when I give my own recipe for them a try soon. I decided to heat a batch of them in the oven (they take 15-20 minutes to heat in the oven or you can heat them in the microwave...I chose the oven). 

While the meatballs heated, I piled our plates with fresh spring mix and then placed the meatballs in the center. I had leftover ranch dressing that we used. I can honestly say that I've never had salad topped with meatballs before...but it was actually good! It was a quick and easy meal that I put together in about 15-20 minutes and was perfect for a light dinner. I'll be making my own version of these little meatballs soon. I snapped a couple quick photos for you to see my silly little meatball salad below. Enjoy!
