Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |

  • Chicken 165° F |

Customize It Instructions

  • If using roasted chicken breast, remove from packaging and microwave until warm, 1-2 minutes. Add to salad and combine.

  • If using cooked beef strips, remove from packaging and microwave until warm, 1-2 minutes. Add to salad and combine.

  • If using Italian sausage, remove from casing. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and Italian sausage to hot pan. Break into smaller pieces with a spoon until no pink remains and sausages reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes. Add to salad and combine.

  • If using sirloin steaks, pat dry and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper. Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add steaks to hot pan, and cook until browned and steaks reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 5-7 minutes per side. Rest cooked steaks at least 3 minutes, then slice into ½”-slices and serve on salad.
