This had a nice zing to it. I made it as a side salad for blackened salmon so I didn't use the chicken. I added a clove of garlic and about 3 dashes of cajun seasoning to the dressing. Definitely a keeper.
This is an excellent salad easily adaptable to suit individual tastes and preferences. For me that meant substituting fresh tomatoes for the sun-dried which just weren t moving me in a cold salad. It also meant not stirring crushed garlic into a hot pan where you re blackening chicken which I had Hubs do outside on the gas grill (even tho it s 36 degrees outside!) in a cast iron skillet. I still wanted the garlic flavor however so I added some minced to the salad dressing instead. I needed to adjust the salad dressing as well to my preferred oil to vinegar ratio of 3:1. Equal parts vinegar and oil would be far too vinegary for me. Everything is in balance here and I especially liked the mix of the peppery arugula with the milder greens and the mild creamy avocado against the spicy blackened chicken. Rather than dice everything and toss it altogether I topped the greens with the tomatoes olives and slices of avocado then arranged a sliced chicken breast on each. Great salad that does both the taste buds and body good.
This salad was so good and a snap to put together. Instead of frying the chicken whole I sliced the breasts into strips and then seasoned. Not a sun dried tomato fan so I left those out but because I had everything on hand I added broccoli carrots cukes and topped with feta. The avocado beautifully complimented the spice of the chicken. Very nice and thank you!
Yummy salad! Wonderful flavors. I made it as is & loved it! I was worried the chicken would be too spicy for my taste but it was the right amount of kick. The calorie count is high but that comes from various fats in the recipe which are good fats so I'm ok with it. I will make it again!
Only used sun-dried tomatoes and spring mix since that's what I had on hand but this is easily one of the best salads I've had in a while. The dressing is easily my favorite part! The whole dish is delicious the next day too. I have a lovely slightly tart white wine with it; it goes well.
