I’ve been on a seasonal power salad kick for the past couple of years and after binge eating this salad below, it’s official that it’s this seasons honorary power salad. Summer Grilled Chicken Power Salad here we come.
Where do we even start? Bacon. Duh. This salad is many things but most importantly it’s LOADED with flavor. That all starts with some crisped bacon. If you’re not feeling the bacon, just omit that step and use some olive oil to cook the chicken. However if you’re digging the bacon, you not only use the crispy bacon IN the salad, you use a little bit of the rendered fat to cook the herb crusted chicken. Talk about something being loaded with flavor. Once those 2 proteins are taking care of, you can get into all the farmers market veggies. The bed of this salad is some gorgeous baby romaine lettuce I snagged from my farmers market, topped with raw corn (you guys know how I roll), plenty of blueberries, goat cheese and avocado. Done and done.
Everything gets tossed with a lemon champagne vinaigrette and you’ve pretty much sealed the deal.
