Ingredients

  • 6 ounces baby spinach
  • 1 head red lettuce coarsely chopped
  • 2 cups micro-greens I used sunflower sprouts
  • 1 cup roasted tomatoes chopped & chilled
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 4 ounces goat cheese crumbled
  • 2 cups diced chicken cooked & seasoned
  • 1 tablespoons seasoning Italian or Sicilian

Lemon Vinaigrette

  • 1/3 fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons finely diced shallots
  • season with pepper to taste optional

Instructions

  • Need a great topping for the salad, make these Italian Herb Biscuits to serve on the side, or to chop up into croutons.
  • Make the vinaigrette by mixing together lemon juice, olive oil, honey, garlic, shallots and salt in a small Mason jar or bowl. Set in the fridge to chill until ready to serve.
  • Mix all of the greens above together in a large salad or serving bowl.
  • Top with chopped walnuts, chicken and roasted tomatoes.
  • Toss with about 3/4 of the vinaigrette that you had prepared earlier. Top with seasoning and crumbled goat cheese and gently toss.
  • Add remaining dressing, by lightly drizzling it over the salad and goat cheese.
  • Serve immediately or set in the fridge until ready to serve, up to 1 hour before.
