Recipe

In my house salads usually consist of whatever greens, veggies, and herbs I have in the house tossed with a quick dressing of olive oil, balsamic, mustard, and honey. Sometimes I throw in leftover protein or grains depending on if it is a side dish or main course. Either way since they are usually a weird mishmash of things, they don’t end up here on Slender Kitchen. However this recent mishmash was so good I had to share it. It’s a simple salad made with some quick grilled chicken, zucchini, quinoa, mint, chives, and spinach with a simple vinaigrette. Perfect for a hearty lunch or dinner.
