A little sweet, a little savory, and a whole lot of tasty goodness. This salad makes a perfect light main course for when you're trying to eat lighter.
Toss the first ten ingredients into a large bowl. Chill.
In a jar with a tight-fitting lid, add the balsamic vinegar, oil, Dijon mustard, and garlic. Shake well to combine.
Lightly drizzle the vinaigrette over the chilled salad and serve.
This salad can be made with or without the chicken.
Double the vinaigrette dressing ingredients to make enough for the entire week (or longer). Store the vinaigrette in the refrigerator and bring to room temperature before serving.
