Recipe of the Week: Coconut Chicken Salad with Warm Honey Mustard Vinaigrette

I caught a bit of spring-fever the other day, so I ordered some fun summer clothes. The clothes arrived, and I immediately ran upstairs to try them on. As I tried the clothes on, I realized three things: 1) I don’t look the same as I did last summer; 2) I haven’t worked out for several weeks because of sickness; and 3) my legs have not seen sunlight for six months. Needless to say, ALL of the clothes were returned.

Rather than feeling bad about not looking as fit as I did last summer, I decided to concentrate on my eating. I was doing pretty good until I got sick. Since then, I’ve just been snacking on whatever sounded good. Now that I’m feeling better, it’s time to get back to tracking what I’m eating and making sure I’m fueling my body with GOOD, nutritious food.

That’s where this week’s recipe comes in – I wanted something filling but also healthy. This Skinny Taste Coconut Chicken Salad recipe is a great combination of yummy coconut chicken strips and good-for-you salad. It didn’t take long to pull the meal together, and I felt satiated after eating it.

If you are like me and are trying to clean up your eating after a LONG winter, give this recipe a try. It’s been a favorite of mine for years.
