Hi! I hope you’re having a good Thursday.

This is the salad I ate for lunch and it was SO good! It’s extremely easy to make and so filling that it would be a wonderful dinner option too!

Put a few cups of greens in a bowl. {Super helpful if your greens are already washed and torn in a glass bowl with a tight fitting lid in the fridge. Today my bowl had half spinach and half leaf lettuce.}

Then just layer the greens with: diced avocado, gouda cheese, cherry tomatoes and cooked, shredded chicken. {I had leftover chicken that had been cooked with Italian seasonings and fresh rosemary.}

For the dressing: melt 1 Tablespoon bacon drippings in a skillet, then add
2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar and
2 cloves of garlic, minced.

Heat it for less than a minute and pour over your salad.

Lastly, I sprinkled it all with smoked paprika. Voila!

The flavor of the dressing is rich yet subtle and sets off the flavor of the cheese, chicken and avocado so beautifully.

I hope you will give it a try and then experiment with other herbs, spices, cheeses, vegetables and meat.

Life is way too short to eat the same things over and over and over!

Love to you today.

Jacque
