Light n Crisp Summer Salad

It’s summertime and beautiful outside! Maybe a bit warm depending on where you live and time to lighten up what you eat. I love salads in the summer but sometimes they can be boring and it’s even more challenging for me because I don’t really care for lettuce. I like arugula, butter lettuce and romaine. Mostly I prefer romaine because it’s light and crunchy and holds up well to all the yummy veggies and protein I like to toss in. Here’s a tasty salad to add to your summer menu! (pick up a roasted chicken breast from your deli or rotisserie chicken).


  • 1 Roasted Chicken Breast
  • Romain lettuce
  • 1 sm Poblano Pepper
  • 1 Vine Ripe Tomato
  • Avocado
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Lime and Zest
  • Agave Nectar
  1. in a small bowl whisk together 1/4 cup of  extra vigin olive oil, lime juice with zest, a heaping tSp of agave nectar and salt & pepper.
  2. drizzle 1 tBs of dressing over lettuce and toss to coat.
  3. shred chicken, slice: poblano, tomato, and avocado. lay over lettuce and drizzle with the remaining dressing.
