Yes, it’s getting to be that time of year, where salads are becoming more and more frequent on the sidewalk shoes dinner table. I had some leftover chicken, from my spatchcocking, and wanted to use it for dinner. I thought about pasta, but then decided that after my birthday, Mr. Sidewalk Shoes birthday, and teacher appreciation week, a salad would help offset the 7.5 pounds that I gained!!!
So, guess what? I made one up. AND it was good! I know. I was as shocked as you are. It’s so easy, there really isn’t even a recipe – and would you expect anything more from me? First I cooked the quinoa in chicken broth for a little extra flavor. Then in a large bowl I added a couple of cups of cooked chicken, some mixed salad greens, a couple of sprigs of chopped mint, and the slightly cooled quinoa. I tossed that with a light vinaigrette of lemon juice and olive oil and seasoned with salt and pepper. It was so quick and easy and tasted all fresh an healthy.
