Mango Chipotle Chicken Salad

You can always count on a large container of vanilla greek yogurt in my fridge, but after tasting my latest container over and over again, I realized that this was definitely an off batch of vanilla.

It is definitely plain yogurt. Now I’m trying to figure out what to do with all of this plain yogurt! I have to spice it up or sweeten it up or just do something to it! So as we sit here with a fresh rotisserie chicken, I figured chicken salad is the way to go.

2 tbsp white onion, diced
2 tbsp bell pepper, diced
1/4 cup english cucumber, diced1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
2 tbsp roasted, salted sunflower seeds
3/4 cup chicken breast, shredded

Directions
Mix all ingredients together in a medium bowl, except chicken. Taste and adjust any seasonings to your liking. Fold in your shredded chicken. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes to let all of the flavors come together.

Serving Suggestions
I wrapped my chicken salad up in a whole wheat, low carb tortilla with some romaine leaves and 1 100 calorie packet of Wholly Guacamole. This would also be great over mixed greens or as a sandwich instead of a wrap.

You could even do it as a fun appetizer! Get some baked Tostitos scoops and spoon 1 tbsp of chicken salad into each scoop. Sprinkle some chopped green onion and a dusting of chili powder on top and pass around!

Summer Salad with Peach Mango Dressing

I love summer and of course the deliciously fresh fruits that come along with it!

I’m always looking for ways to spice up my salads and after a nice grocery haul at the farmers’ market last weekend, I had the ingredients to whip up a light and flavorful side dish for dinner.

Ingredients
1 medium peach
1/2 mango
1 tsp champagne vinegar
1 tbsp EVOO
1/2 – 1 tbsp honey to taste
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste

Directions
Slice up the peach and mango. Throw all of your ingredients into a food processor except EVOO. As the processor is running, slowly drizzle the EVOO into the mixture, allowing it to emulsify.

Be sure to taste as you’re adding the honey, salt, and pepper to be sure you get the right sweetness and saltiness that you’re looking for! It’s that easy!

Summer Salad

As far as it goes adding fruits and veggies to your salads, I always try to choose the freshest ingredients I can get. This week I was able to find strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, tomato, green pepper, cucumber, vidalia onion, and crisp green onion. The lighter flavors of the vegetables I chose really accent the fresh fruit!

Barr & Table Summer Salad

Toss it all together with a fresh spring mix (my favorite!) and top with dried cherries, sunflower seeds, and your delicious Peach Mango dressing.
