Raspberry Pesto Chicken Salad

23 Oct

When I studied at NYU, all of my musical theater classes took place in a building on 18th Street.  Right next door was this pizza and pasta place, and they had an AMAZING salad bar.  Practically every day I got a salad with mixed greens, pesto chicken, crunchy noodles, almonds and raspberry vinaigrette.  I know it sounds like an odd combo but it sooo works!  This week, I attempted to recreate this salad using ingredients from home.  It was delish!

Raspberry Pesto Chicken Salad

1 head Romaine lettuce, thinly sliced
3 chicken tenders, marinated in store bought pesto sauce and grilled
Generous handful of crunchy Asian noodles (like La Choy)
Generous handful of sliced almonds
3-2-1 Raspberry Vinaigrette dressing (recipe below!)

Just toss all ingredients together for a refreshing and crunchy lunch salad! 

3-2-1 Raspberry Vinaigrette

1 tsp organic cane sugar
2 tsp raspberry vinegar
3 tsp extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Wisk together for a sweet vinaigrette 🙂

What was/is your go-to lunch?
