IMG_0665For Weekday Supper this week, I’m bringing common salad elements together with a bit of a Mexican flare that I hope you enjoy. I believe fresh ingredients make or break a salad, so I recommend using any local or farmer’s market produce for this recipe if you can. This salad combines mixed greens and poached chicken with the crisp texture of the carrots and pepper and the juiciness of the tomatoes. I love adding some cilantro and lime into the salsa as it really brings the flavor profile together.
