You guys! I’m in love with salads at the moment and I’ve been craving a chicken caesar salad for awhile now. I love a big dinner salad for dinner when the weather starts warming up and temps start to rise.
When I partnered with the lovely folks at Hip Chick Farms and saw they had organic, gluten free chicken meatballs I knew I was gonna throw them on a caesar salad!
I love using seasonal veggies in my salads, so some snap peas were definitely going in, along with hearts of palm, avocado (duh), and radicchio for a little bit of bitter and pop of color!
Okay, back to the star of the party (errr, salad)… these chicken meatballs! #balling
I love that they are super fast to heat up while you assemble your salad ingredients, whether you throw them straight from the freezer into the oven to bake (like the directions suggest,) or you break the rules and thaw them in refrigerator and heat in a skillet with ghee!
And, let’s not forget about tying all these goodies together with a delicious homemade salad dressing. Because it’s so damn hard to find a good dressing that doesn’t have junky oils and ingredients I can’t pronounce in them.
This one is bright and lemony, and you might wanna double it and keep some in the fridge for later!
