These are the ramblings of a self-described wheat, grain and gluten-free “gourmet girl” that loves to cook and eat good food. I love creating and sharing recipes and photographing “beautiful food”. In July 2012, I eliminated wheat, grains and added sugar from my diet and rediscovered real, whole fresh foods again and effortlessly lost 65+ pounds. Join me in my wheat, grain and gluten-free journey. See how easy it is to enjoy grain free gourmet, one meal at a time! Welcome to my blog. Enjoy!
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!
