“the rob salad” aka rosemary chicken and grape salad

Rob_Salad_002

This salad is named after, my love, Rob. I could write pages about why I love this man so much but I will leave it with this. He is extraordinary. Lord willing, I will spend my lifetime discovering his greatness. This salad is his most favorite. It is filled with sliced grapes, goat cheese, caramelized pecans and rosemary chicken… truly divine, like him. We hope you enjoy!

This salad takes minutes to assemble and is quite a crowd pleaser!

Ingredients

baby spring mixed salad
balsamic rosemary chicken breast, thinly sliced* (important note at bottom)
1 whole avocado, sliced (this is optional but a fantastic option)
goat cheese (however much you prefer… we like generous portions)
sliced red or black grapes (about 3/4 to 1 cup worth)
1/2 cup of caramelized pecans
avocado oil (about 1/3 cup)
balsamic vinegar (a little less than 1 tablespoon)
1 tablespoon of brown sugar (or less if that is too sweet for you)
dash of salt
dash of garlic powder
dash of pepper
finely chopped rosemary (about one sprig worth)

Instructions

Mix all the ingredients together and toss with dressing.

 

*I buy the already marinated rosemary chicken from trader joes. This is the best option (although you can marinate and grill your own) there are a few reasons that make this wonderful. I use the juice in the package to add to the dressing. This is mostly rosemary and oil (as the chicken has already been cooked so no worries there)…it adds such great flavor to the dressing. Further, I use the rosemary sprig in the package to finely chop and add to the dressing. One package of chicken feeds 2 as a main dish.
