Strawberry Blueberry Chicken Salad With Baby Greens And Orange Vinaigrette topped with Pecans and Feta Cheese. Does life get any better then this? 

The weathers been hot so cooking around our house has been at a minimum along with a long list of things happening, one of them being my lap top updated and now doesn't want to load. So I have been MIA but I want you all to know you are FABULOUS and I am so thankful for each and everyone of you who stop by.. 

Ok, now then back to the salad.. My husband loves a salad very similar to this at Panera Bread Company. It's a staple he always orders and then I order something different and then I drool over his salad and then he shares because he just loves me that much. 

So,  I know you have all the items in your fridge since it's summer and toss this together for dinner or lunch because it is truly a fabulous flavor  combination. 



1/2 Pound Baby Mixed Greens. Washed And Dried.

Baby Lettuce Greens topped with sliced strawberries and blueberries.

Add 1 pound Sliced Strawberries And 12 ounces Blueberries.

Baby Lettuce Greens tossed with sliced strawberries, blueberries, pecans and mandarin oranges.


Add: 
  • 15 ounces Drained Canned Mandarin Oranges
  • 2 cups Pecans
Toss Well.

A large half orange being juiced.

Juice: 
  • 2 whole Large Oranges
  • 1 whole Lime 
Place in a shaker jar and add: 
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/3 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Shake well and set aside.

3 chicken breast in a cast iron pan sprinkled with pepper and drizzled with orange vinaigrette.

Add  2 tablespoons Olive Oil to a pan over medium  heat. 

Season each side of chicken with 1/2 teaspoon of fresh ground pepper and add the chicken to the pan. 

Pour 1/4 cup Orange Vinaigrette over the top of the chicken. Once chicken is cooked half way through (about 8 minutes) flip chicken over. 

The vinaigrette will have condensed down and formed a lovely glaze over the chicken and at this point you might need to reduce the heat to medium low and cook another  about 8 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and no longer pink.
