It is so hot here in Boston, and that’s coming from the girl who was just visiting Florida in June. Wheeeew, hot. In leu, turning on the stove the past two nights wasn’t quite in the cards. The grill was though, paired with this Sriracha Lime Chicken Chopped Salad that is just bursting with flavor.
Let’s see what we got: spicy and bold chicken, sweet and juicy grilled pineapple, refreshing crisp local lettuce, local tomatoes, and finally, avocado. Count me in any day of the week. Oh, and don’t forget the light and easy lime vinaigrette.

The official first day of Summer is TOMORROW. Where did the year go? School is ending, and I’m getting ready for a blog-filled summer bringing you tons of recipes that I think you all will absolutely love. Starting with today! Today’s Healthy Food Friday with American Express is all about lemons and my go-to salad dressing!
Earlier this week I took a vote on my Facebook Page (if you’re not following me there, you should totally come hang), looking for which lemon recipe you guys wanted to see. The options were: Strawberry Lemonade, my go-to Salad Dressing, Lemon Curd, and Lemon Cookies. While two were in the top, it seems you guys love lemons as much as I do right now, so I’m thinking they will all need to appear in the upcoming weeks!
I often start my mornings off with a glass of warm water with lemon. Lemons are amazing and provide so many health benefits. Plus, they often add the perfect flavor to a dish. Win-win all around.
I decided to start off with a favorite of mine. The past few weeks have been all about the BBQ and light side dishes. I’ve been getting tons of local spinach from the farm, and have been making salads left and right. This is my go-to dressing that I whip up in under 4 minutes to dress our salads with!
P.S. For my Instagram fam, here is the salad chopper I was telling you about! Find it here.

It’s finally feeling like Spring here in Boston!
The sun is out, the birds are chirping, and I’m upping my workouts to get that Summer body ready. We’ve had a busy few weeks and sometimes a quick, yet delicious and nutritious dinner filled with healthy fats is in order.
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh grated ginger, more to taste
Preheat oven to high broil. Line a sheet tray with parchment paper and set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl, mix marinade ingredients. Pat salmon dry and season with salt and pepper. Place in the bowl and cover with marinade ingredients. Set aside in the fridge until the oven is ready. You can also leave the salmon to marinate overnight.
Place salmon in the oven for 8-10 minutes, or until fully cooked through.
In a small mixing bowl, combine dressing ingredients. Whisk well until well blended.
Once salmon is done, let cool for 5 minutes.
Place all ingredients in mixing a serving bowl of choice. Drizzle dressing over salad, mix and serve!
Let’s start with this… I love salads. But sometimes in the winter I want something warm. Now let’s combine the two… a warm salad for the perfect meal starter (or hey, add some protein and make it your entire meal)! Warm baked apples, roasted sweet potato and onions drizzled with walnuts and a homemade dressing. Sweet, Savory, and flavorful perfection. Assembling this salad is a breeze, and you can shop Membership Rewards points along the way!
