Salad's Night Out

One of the best things about salad is the many, many ways you can dress it up.  Like eggs, there are infinite ways to eat them.  You can make them with meat, veggies, fruit, or my personal favorite, ALL THREE!

I recently spent some time with my sister, and after a long walk in the rain with her doggy, we needed a nice meal to warm us up.  After compiling ingredients from our two refridgerators, we came up with a family classic, hot chicken on salad.  This is a great meal to prepare because it is incredibly easy and incorporates many wonderful flavors.  I start out with a nice helping of salad greens and top it with hot chicken pieces, sauteed veggies, fresh avocado, strawberries, and homemade dressing.  The chicken is simple, just do the following:

Cut boneless chicken breasts into small pieces
Dip pieces into whisked egg
Dip pieces into a flower/herb mix and coat
Cook chicken in a hot pan with olive oil until brown, crispy, and done in the middle.

Put all ingredients together, pour a nice glass of red wine, and enjoy the company around you.
