Like many, I've resolved to lean more towards my healthy habits with the start of the new year. One way I'm doing that is with a bento box my sister gave me for Christmas so I can better plan out my lunches and work snacks to make sure I'm getting all my fruits and veggies :) It's been a blast so far!
Another resolution is to get back to trying new foods. I recently discovered I actually DO like grapefruit, so I decided to not only eat it on its own, but incorporate into a fun salad!
Chicken, Mango and Grapefruit Salad with Almonds and Goat Cheese
6 ounces arugula (or other greens of your choice)
2 cups grilled chicken, cut into 1/2 inch pieces (mine was seasoned with salt and pepper)
2 ripe mangos, peeled, pitted and cubed
2 grapefruit, peeled, sectioned and cut into large pieces
2 ounces goat cheese, crumbled
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons basalmic vinegar
2 teaspoons sugar
Salt and pepper to taste
Toss the arugula, chicken, mango, grapefruit, goat cheese crumbles and almonds in a large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar, sugar and salt and pepper. Toss the dressing with the salad and serve!
Note, while I do enjoy grapefruit, I need a little sugar which is why I added it to the dressing. Feel free to exclude that from the recipe :)
