Mixed Greens & Chicken Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette

Salads are often frowned upon in certain circles as bland bird food, but many a foodie can tell you a salad can very well be a delicious, filling and healthy meal. The trick is to have a well layered salad with different greens, veges, beans, proteins and of course, dressing. Here I chose a Balsamic Vinaigrette because it's sweet tart nature compliments greens and fruits really well, especially with a little heat from some jerk chicken that I used as protein. It made for a beautiful medley. Without further ado here's my recipe....do enjoy.


Balsamic Vinaigrette

1/2 cup Olive oil

1/4 Balsamic Vinegar

2 tbsp Warm Honey

1/2 cup Brown Sugar

1/4 tsp Garlic Powder

1/4 tsp Parsley Flakes

1/8 tsp Salt


Place all in a bowl together and whisk well or place in jar with a lid and shake well.


1 Bundle Curly Kale chopped

1/4 bundle Arugula chopped

1/4 Bundle Swiss Chard chopped

1 cup cooked Chicken cubed

1 cup Chickpeas cooked

1/2 Sweet Pepper sliced

1 small Apple sliced

1 small Onion sliced

1/2 cup chopped Pecans

2 tbsps finely chopped Parsley

2 medium Tomatoes sliced
