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. INGREDIENTS 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 METHOD Place all in a bowl together and whisk well or place in jar with a lid and shake well. INGREDIENTS 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 METHOD ●Place all ingredients except tomatoes in salad bowl or large mixing bowl. ●Drizzle the desired amount of dressing and mix well. ●Place in bowl and garnish with Tomatoes and enjoy.
