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

- drizzle 1 tBs of dressing over lettuce and toss to coat.
- shred chicken, slice: poblano, tomato, and avocado. lay over lettuce and drizzle with the remaining dressing.
