I always like a light dinner on a hot evening, especially one loaded with fresh vegetables and a healthy protein, like rotisserie chicken. And it doesn’t hurt that it’s quick and easy to make. Serves 2-4 Total Time: 20 minutes.
cups rotisserie-cooked chicken, cut up
cups romaine lettuce, torn
cup red onion, chopped
cup cherry tomatoes, halved
cup celery, chopped
cup cucumber, diced
cup balsamic vinegar
cup extra virgin olive oil
teaspoons Dijon mustard
teaspoons light brown sugar
garlic cloves, minced
tablespoon capers, drained and finely chopped
Vinaigrette: Place all the ingredients in a screw-top jar and shake to combine. Taste and adjust the seasonings.
Salad: In a large bowl toss Romaine lettuce, chicken, cucumber, tomatoes, onion and celery. Pour dressing until evenly coated.
Refrigerate at least 30 minutes before serving. Yum Yum!
Note: You can always add to this salad; try carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, cheese or even black olives.
