Whatever the cause, I knew that tonight's dinner would have to be of the light and refreshing variety. I scanned my Pinterest boards and this one caught my eye. Wow, I'm so glad it did.. This was super light, wonderfully refreshing and I can see this being a great "go to" summer lunch or dinner meal!
For 2 Salads:
2 grilled chicken breasts
Spring Salad Mix
1/2 cantaloupe, chopped into chunks
Several red grapes
1 large, ripe banana, sliced
1 orange, sliced
1 Granny Smith apple, sliced
1/4 fresh pineapple, cut into chunks
On two dinner plates, place the spinach leaves and the spring salad mix. You want enough of a bed of greens to place all the chicken and fruit on.
Place one sliced grilled chicken breast in the center of the greens, on each plate.
Place an equal amount on the fruit on each plate, surrounding the chicken breasts.
To make the creamy banana dressing:
1 ripe banana
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/6 cup brown sugar (or 2 and 2/3 Tbsp)
juice of 1/4 lemon
Place all ingredients in the bowl of a food processor or blender. Blend until pureed and creamy. Serve on top of the salads.
