Now if you’ve been reading this blog for any time at all you KNOW I’m not a salad girl. I’m not a fan of most Veggies and few fruits. BUT I had an amazing salad at a baby shower a few years ago and I had to come up with my own version! I LOVE this recipe! It’s easy to make larger, and I often make a half batch for my own lunch!
This is a great recipe to make for a large gathering, a shower, a potluck, etc… it can easily be doubled or tripled. I use a rotisserie chicken when I’m in a hurry. But honestly I LOVE the flavor of it. When I’m saving money I cook my own. What is your favorite way to cook chicken? I like to saute and hate to boil (had a bad boiling chicken experience when I was pregnant with The Reader).
I finally bought myself the food processor attachment for the bosch and I couldn’t WAIT to try it out, this dressing was the first! I LOOOOOOVE it! I’ve made it in the blender, but it’s just not the same. Next up… remaking my homemade nutella!!!

So what’s your go to potluck or large gathering food? Honestly I usually bring a cake… but for those times they don’t want one I bring this!Do NOT miss a single post.
