2 Chicken Breastboneless & skinless
5ozMixed Salad Greenscontainer
½cupMandarin Orange Segmentscanned
For the Dressing
In a mixing bowl, combine the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, mustard, honey, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Whisk vigorously until well fully incorporated. Set aside.
Over medium-high heat, give the chicken breast a light sprinkle of salt and pepper, then sauté in 1 tbs olive oil for 3-4 minutes on each side, depending on the thickness of chicken. Let rest for 3-5 minutes before slicing.
To make the salad, top the mixed greens with walnuts, blueberries, strawberries, orange segments, cheese and sliced chicken. Serve balsamic dressing alongside salad.
Reheat dressing by microwave in 15 second intervals, if olive oil solidifies.
Separation after refrigeration is normal.
