Hello Salad Lovers! Today I have for you a super easy and colorful salad, made with smoked chicken, mozzarella, canned button mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, buckwheat groats and mixed salad leaves. If you don’t have smoked chicken drumsticks, baked chicken drumsticks would also work well.
This delicate salad has so many different flavors and textures that work incredibly well together. Mmm… I love them as much as these vegetarian microgreen salad!
I have made a wonderful arugula salad dressing that my husband likes a lot. Absolutely the best part is, it is so easy to prepare!
All I’m saying is that you need to try this damn delicious salad. I know, you will thank me later 😉
