"This is perfect for summer. You can even buy cooked chicken if it's too hot to cook your own. This makes two large dinner portions."

  1. Warm 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Season both sides of chicken with Cajun seasoning, and place in hot oil. Stir in crushed garlic. Cook chicken 5 minutes on each side, or until juices run clear. Remove chicken from skillet, drain on paper towels, cool slightly, and dice; discard oil and garlic.
  2. In a small bowl, mix remaining olive oil, balsamic vinegar, mustard, salt, and pepper.
  3. In a large bowl, gently toss the dressing with the mixed salad greens, arugula, avocado, sun-dried tomatoes, and olives. Top with diced chicken to serve.

Only used sun-dried tomatoes and spring mix since that's what I had on hand, but this is easily one of the best salads I've had in a while. The dressing is easily my favorite part! The whole dis...

A very tasty salad. Makes a nice summer dinner!
