A protein packed salad that tastes like summer! :)


For the Dressing:

- 1 medium orange

- 1 lemon

- 3 Tbs olive oil

- 1 Tbs raw honey

- 1/4 tsp. salt

- 1/4 tsp. pepper

For the Salad:

- 3 cups shaved brussels sprouts

- 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds

- 1 chopped apple

- 1/4 cup torn fresh mint leaves

- 1/4 cup torn fresh basil leaves

- 1/4 cup raw walnut pieces

For the Chicken:

- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar 

- 1 Tbs raw honey

- 1 Tbs whole-grain mustard

- 1 tsp. finely chopped fresh rosemary

- 1 lb chicken breast tenders

- 1/4 tsp. salt

- 1/4 tsp. pepper

- 1 1/2 Tbs avocado oil

To make dressing for the salad: 

Finely grate orange peel, for orange zest, and place in a large bowl. Juice the orange and add to the bowl. Do the same with the lemon. Add oil, honey, salt, pepper, and whisk to blend. Add brussels sprouts, pomegranate seeds, apple, mint, basil, and walnuts. Toss to blend.

To make Rosemary Balsamic Chicken:

Combine vinegar, honey, mustard, and rosemary in a small bowl. Blend and set aside. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Heat avocado oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook for a few minutes on both sides until chicken is browned. Reduce heat to medium and add vinegar mixture. Cook until chicken is cooked through and sauce starts to reduce and thicken. 

Add chicken to the salad and enjoy!
