Ingredients

SALAD

  • 1/2 pound chicken breasts
  • 6 cups spring mix lettuce
  • 1 cup fresh blackberries
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1/4 cup red onion, sliced
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts

  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce

Instructions

  1. Saute the chicken in a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat until fully cooked through. Tent with foil and let rest while preparing the rest of the salad.
