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.

1/2 cup Olive oil


1/4 Balsamic Vinegar


2 tbsp Warm Honey

METHOD



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

1 small Onion sliced


1/2 cup chopped Pecans


2 tbsps finely chopped Parsley
