This is definitely a favorite in our house. It makes a great snack in small portions, but is a nice light meal as well. It has a good amount of protein in it- pecans, chicken, and quinoa. (Did you know that quinoa is a complete protein?) It's also easy to make if you have some of these ingredients ready to go. I usually keep cooked quinoa and chicken in our fridge for easy to assemble snacks or meals. (The biggest motivation for this is to avoid the dreaded hanger.) Since I've been doing a great job at actually keeping plants alive, I planted some basil. This means that I always have fresh basil when needed. I also have green onions. They're not exactly planted, just re-sprouting. Did you see this on Pinterest? It totally works! It's great for us because I usually have some in my little mason jar. The dressing I like best is Trader Joe's Ramano Caesar. If we're out of that, I normally use a balsamic vinaigrette dressing.
That's it! Hope you guys enjoy this recipe. Like I said, it's one of our favorites!
