Caribbean Chicken Salad Recipe and Giveaway

Grilled Caribbean Chicken Salad

I never turn down free food, so when Organic Girl asked me to try out their Five Happiness Salad Blend, I was all over it!

This delicious blend is a combination of baby bok choy leaves, baby red chard, tango, mizuna, baby arugula, baby spinach, baby green chard, baby green romaine and baby green oakleaf lettuce and comes in a 100% recycled clamshell. Organic Girl even washes them 3 times before packaging them so you don’t have to!

I’m not much of a salad maker so I was at a loss for what to do with all of this. I didn’t want to make the typical asian salad usually associated with Bok Choy, so I took a different approach and came up with the most amazing Caribbean Chicken Salad recipe. This perfect combination of fruits and veggies has a sweet, earthy taste to it and the perfect amount of crunch. I always have to include crunch to a salad, otherwise I feel like I’ll be hungry again in an hour.

I could seriously eat it EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! Be sure to enter in the giveaway below to try it for yourself!

A Non-fat Word From My Sister


My sister has quite a way with words, and she is brilliant in the kitchen. By brilliant I mean she can take high calorie foods that I love and make them low-calorie, vegetarian and delicious! Here are a few quick ways to use her favorite non-fat yogurt, FAGE.

In her own words…

“If you mix some Ranch Dip mix in with FAGE it makes a delicious dip for carrots and pretzels.
Mix it with cilantro and eat it on tacos instead of sour cream, or with sriracha for a little spicy dip or topping. OR… with fat free feta for a delicious dip or spread on a veggie burger. There you go, I just wrote you a damn blog post.”

P.S. she also made that super adorbs cloth napkin in the photo.

Confession: I threw this post together as an excuse to play with my new photo lights.
