It's supposed to be the 4th day of summer except it's raining. Sitting in our lounge I watched the raindrops slowly fall down our windows. Regardless of a somewhat crazy and hectic day, I couldn't help but notice the beauty in the glistening drops.
On a food related note, I wanted to try something fresh and healthy this week but still wholesome and filling. Salads are great but majority of those out there (you try googling the word salad!) are just a bunch of leaves thrown together which doesn't sound very tasty or filling in my opinion! Cold chicken is one of those things that is great in a salad and gives it a bit more sustenance. Surprisingly, grapes and chicken make a great combo. The grapes make this salad nice and juicy while the walnuts give it a bit of extra crunch.
And there you have it; a healthy, quick and easy salad! The dressing is the icing on the cake and has some of my favourite dressing ingredients which are balsamic vinegar and honey. The assembly for this meals is literally throw everything together in a bowl and toss to combine. Cooking doesn't get much easier than that :)
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
A few handfuls of rocket, washed
2 cups of halved, seedless grapes of any colour
200g of crumbled feta cheese
Handful of toasted walnuts
2 cups of shredded chicken
1/3 cup of balsamic vinegar
2 tbsps of honey
Salt and pepper to taste
Toss all salad ingredients together in a bowl.
Add dressing ingredients in a small bowl and stir to combine. Pour over the dressing and serve.
