Hump Day Eats & Drinks ... #summersalad



I made this amazing salad for a sweet bunch of friends on Wednesday.  This picture along with the original recipe came from Pinterest, but when I was reading the recipe I decide to change a few things.  I have told you before I don't like to cook, but salads are my thing!  I can whip up a mean salad, especially if the hubs is around to grill the meat to top it or be its side kick!
This salad was amazing and all three of us enjoyed each and every bite that I made.  There was literally just enough left for me to have as a pre dinner snack before I headed out for cheap mexican!

Make it this weekend and enjoy the last few days of summer!

Sigh ...

Summer Salad

4 Grilled Chicken Breasts seasoned with olive oil, salt and pepper
1/2 Container of greens mix (I used the power blend)
1 Romaine lettuce heart (some call it a head)
(I lay my leaves flat and cut them length ways twice and then chop into bite size pieces)
2 cups sliced strawberries
2 cups cubed watermelon
1/2 of a red onion halves and sliced (I used less)
1/4 cup fresh basil, finely chopped
1/2 package of feta cheese
toasted almonds
Girard's Light Champagne Dressing

I love to use a platter to plate my salads ... and for this one I dressed it as follows:

salad greens, strawberries, watermelon, sliced grilled chicken, red onion, basil, feta sprinkled, toasted almonds and then let the ladies use their own amount of dressing!

Enjoy!!
