Berry Citrus Pecan Salad with Lemon Chia Seed Dressing

By Micki Brown

My husband, who usually doesn’t like fruit, raved about this salad. He said it “tricked him into eating fruit”.

Salad Ingredients:
1 cup Pecan Halves
1 head Romaine lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces
1 pint fresh strawberries, sliced
1/2 pint fresh blueberries
2 oz goat cheese, crumbled
1/4 cup red onion, thinly sliced
2 or 3 Tangerines, peeled, seeded and cut into chunks
2 grilled chicken breasts or thighs, sliced or diced (optional)

Dressing Ingredients:
1/4 cup raw honey
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp dijon mustard
1/4 tsp pink salt
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 tbsp Chia seeds
In a large bowl, combine romaine, berries, tangerines, goat cheese and onion. Add chicken. Toss gently.

In a small mason jar, combine dressing ingredients and shake with lid on.

When ready to serve, add pecans and drizzle with dressing. ENJOY!
