Maple Balsamic Dressing

INSTRUCTIONS

Step 1

Prepare bacon + chicken: Cook turkey bacon and grill chicken if you haven’t already. See notes.

Step 2

Prepare dressing by whisking together all ingredients in a small bowl or jar. I like using a jar with a lid for this so you can easily store any leftover dressing in the fridge in that same jar.

Step 3

Grab two bowls and add a base of spring mix, pear slices, grilled chicken breast, bacon, goat cheese, dried cranberries, walnuts and avocado.

Step 4

Drizzle salad with desired amount of balsamic dressing and enjoy!
