The Foodie Files

I saw this recipe on one of my favorite blogs, Camille Styles, and just haven't been able to stop thinking about it for the last few days.  I tried a variation of it for dinner tonight and it was SO fresh, SO summery and SO good.  It's simple but delicious (especially in this heat)...I give it two thumbs way up!

8 chicken tenders
1 clove diced garlic
Extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup corn
1 ripe avocado, peeled and diced
6 cups mixed baby greens
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
2 tbsp crumbled feta
1/4 cup marcona almonds
salt & pepper, to taste

1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp honey
1/4 cup olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

For the dressing: Place all ingredients in a screw top jar and shake to combine.

Saute garlic in extra virgin olive oil, season chicken to taste, then cook over medium heat for 15-20 minutes.  In a bowl, combine baby greens, corn, avocado, cherry tomatoes, feta, and almonds.

Toss lightly with dressing to coat or serve dressing on the side.  Top with chicken and eat up!  Serves 2 as an entree, 4 as a side.
