Alright. Everyone knows salads are bullshit. And if you don't think salads are bullshit, I find you very suspicious and I don't trust you. However, sometimes when you want a light, healthy meal that comes together in less than five minutes, a chicken and berry salad will do. One of my friends' moms made this salad for me in college and I've been riffing it ever since.
Chicken and Berry Salad
- couple handfuls of mixed greens
- 1 cup mixed berries of your choice (blueberries and raspberries shown)
- 1 oz crumbly cheese (I used gorgonzola, but I've been known to use bleu or feta)
- 3 oz rotisserie chicken
- 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
- ground pepper
Fill up a large bowl with some greens. Slap some berries, cheese, and chicken on there. I usually add walnuts too but I completely forgot until right this moment. Drizzle with olive oil and red wine vinegar. Finish with a few twists of fresh cracked pepper. Viola.
See. Even Phin thinks salads are bullshit.
