Even though there’s still a little snow on the ground, the temperatures have been (slowly) rising and I’m getting more and more excited to spend more time outside, put away the winter coats, and wear sandals.
And what better way to get in the mood than with a salad. I think salads are the best meal during the spring and summer because they’re light and colorful but still filling when packed with the right ingredients.
Let me tell you—this grape quinoa chicken salad is delicious. I got the idea when I wondered what grapes and honey mustard dressing would taste like together. A weird combination, I know, but the result is divine. Honey mustard is one of those dressings that is either really, really good or really, really bad. I found a light dressing to use made by a local company and I’m hooked.
