Yellow & Green Grilled Chicken & Spring Mix Salad.
They say it is important to balance colors in our diet.
I love to make salads from whatever I can find in the fridge and pantry – especially at lunch time – when it is only me, and I can make it whatever way I want!
I often make a large batch of grilled chicken during the week so I can have leftovers for salads and snacks.
I love mixing veggies and proteins and fruits and nuts in a beautiful, colorful meal.
This yellow and green salad just “happened.” I had not planned it to be yellow and green, but when it ended it up that way, I marveled at it’s beauty as well as it’s deliciousness.
For this “springy” lunch time salad in the middle of February – when the temperatures in our part of the world have been more spring-like than wintry – I found myself topping a bed of Spring Mix greens with beautiful yellows.
Enjoying yellows and greens not only in my salad, but in the air here in Mars in this beautiful stretch of Spring in February.
