Unrecipe of the Week

August 22, 2012

Last night I got home from work totally exhausted and not in the mood for spending much time preparing dinner. I had a few things laying around the kitchen from the night before that I whipped into a great hearty dinner salad.

I love when everything comes together in a way that is worth replicating in the future!

On a bed of baby arugula, I diced leftover chicken breasts, several heirloom tomatoes, and an avocado. I drizzled it with a quick pesto made of a handful of cilantro*, a garlic clove, a little olive oil, the juice of ½ a lime, and some sea salt.

I tossed it with the other ½ of the lime juice and added a crumble of soft goat cheese, and grind of black pepper.

It doesn’t get much easier, or tastier than this!

*I had cilantro on hand, but any hearty green would work just as well: parsley, arugula, basil, spinach, kale…you name it!
