This is the ramblings of a self-described “gourmet girl” that loves to cook and eat good food. I love creating and sharing recipes, sharing new food finds, talking about and photographing “beautiful food”. In July 2012, I eliminated wheat, grains and added sugar from my diet and have rediscovered real, whole fresh foods again. Join me in my journey. Enjoy and welcome to my blog!

Southwestern Chicken Salad
This evening I decided to finish up some leftovers from the last few dinners I've made. I had the last little Mexican Turkey Slider for lunch today. I still had a couple of grilled boneless chicken thighs left from Saturday's dinner so I decided to make a big main dish salad tonight with them. I picked up some humongous avocados yesterday at the store that I wanted to use in my salad so I put together a quick and easy Southwestern Chicken Salad. I chopped a head of fresh romaine lettuce and put it in a big bowl and then topped it with diced grilled chicken, quartered cherry tomatoes, sliced avocado, shredded sharp cheddar cheese and then a dollop of sour cream and fresh salsa. It was a fresh, quick and easy way to use up the leftover chicken. I snapped a couple photos below. Enjoy!
