Winter salads are lovely. I didn’t know there was even such a term as a winter salad. But I read online that’s what many call them this time of year, so I will too. This balsamic chicken salad with spicy mustard and walnuts is the best because you can cozy up to it for a hearty meal. And what makes it even better is that it’s served warm, not cold.
I have always loved and admired clean, fresh salads. It’s excellent munching on them before the main dish comes when eating out. Also, a salad is perfect for a lite lunch to satisfy one’s hunger. They can even be eaten on the go. And they’re easy.
This balsamic chicken salad with spicy mustard and walnuts recipe is lovely and the main dish to be eaten during the holidays. It’s best when consuming straight from the bowl, scrunched up on the couch in front of the TV, with a toasty blanket thrown over your legs. And the chicken in this salad is served warm, so every bite gets better and better. The lettuce leaves will look cool when they shrivel. Maybe even look like spinach.
