Chopped Chicken Caprese Salad

Hey, how about a little salad recipe that's quick to whip up and yummy too!?

Remember I picked up that chicken at Costco? And was so sorry I did as we are NOT fans of that ...

Well, I had to do something with it, you know?

So what the heck, lets chop it up and make a salad, shall we??

This was for ONE salad ...

head of baby romaine, washed and dried
a nice chunk of cooked chicken
a few little mozzarella balls
fresh basil
cherry tomatoes
fresh basil, chopped

For the dressing, you will need

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup of avocado oil (olive oil is fine as well)
a small dab of grey poupon mustard
a little more fresh basil chopped ;-)

Get chopping! Chop the lettuce and chicken in to bite size pieces. Cut your cherry tomatoes in half.

I used two of these little snack size cheese things. I cut the pieces in half as well (there are 3 balls per pack)

Grab a small bowl and dump all the ingredients for the dressing in. I personally prefer to mix mine up in a canning jar as this makes a TON of dressing.  Whisk til combined. Feel free to season with a little salt and pepper if desired.

Now build your salad and make it pretty!

I made this in the morning to take for lunch. The bowl is from a Wok takeout place and I have those little plastic containers for sauces and dressings as well already on hand. We bought those YEARS ago for jello shots and I decided to start using them up so they don't just gather dust in the cabinet!

Oh, and yes, this also fits in with #Shelftember! Are you following along on Instagram yet??
