This is my favorite go to salad.  It’s easy to make in a pinch, but I think the key is a good quality balsamic vinegar.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of lettuce (romaine is pictured)
  • 1/4 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/2 cup prepared quinoa
  • 1/2 chicken breast, cut any way you like it!
  • 1/4  avocado, cut into cubes
  • Olive oil
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • 1-2 tbsp of shredded hard cheese ( parmesan, asiago, I go for the blend!)

This is going to go pretty fast, so keep up!

Chop salad

and it into a bowl.

sprinkle salad with garlic salt

I like the kind that has parsley flakes in it. Who knows why. My brain is convinced it tastes better I guess. Now spoon in the quinoa. Or just drop it on the top. Whatever works for you. I’m using some of the leftover herbed quinoa I had made.

Now,throw in chicken and avocado… well maybe not throw. Toss in the chicken and avocado. Eh, you get the point.

Drizzle in olive oil (I like to use garlic infused olive oil. FANCY!) and balsamic vinegar.

and sprinkle over the CHEESE!!!

You don’t have to use olive oil and vinegar as your dressing… but try it at least once.  It’s worth it!
