Chopped Cruciferous Salad with Lemon Olive Oil Dressing and Grilled Chicken Breast

Trader Joe’s makes us happy. Very happy. Everytime that we visit, we return home with something we did not know existed but feel as if we can never again live without. Recently, we found the Cruciferous Crunch Collection, which contains chopped kale, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, green cabbage and red cabbage. What does that sound like? The foundation for a perfect summer salad, that’s what.

Of course, we at G@H can never leave a good thing well enough alone. So, we added avocado, chopped dates, fresh raspberries, slivered almonds, and grated Parmesan cheese. We dressed it with oil and lemon juice and topped it with grilled chicken breast.

We are especially proud of those raspberries, which we grew in our backyard. Filling, clean, flavorful, crisp, this chopped cruciferous salad with lemon olive oil dressing tastes like summer in a shallow bowl.
