Happy Monday, friends! I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Ours didn’t go as planned but the silver lining was time with Big Guy’s family in Lumberton. I did manage to squeeze in a ladies lunch on Saturday and yesterday we spent the evening catching up on all our DVRed shows and making pizza. This week is a busy one but I’m looking forward to a weekend at home coming up.
This salad was our dinner on our actual anniversary. And it’s salad perfection.
Juicy, sweet, local berries
Tender grilled chicken
Creamy, tangy goat cheese
Half of the berries marinate for about 15 minutes in a mixture of EVOO, balsamic vinegar, honey, thyme and salt plus pepper. Y’all! I could have eaten the whole bowl of these delicious berries.
The chicken is seasoned with salt, pepper and paprika before being grilled.
To assemble the salad, simply fill a bowl with lettuce, top with the marinated berries and remaining dressing, along with sliced red onions, the sliced grilled chicken, remaining berries, pistachios and goat cheese.
The perfect Spring salad.
