Spring always means new things into my life! Flowers in the yard, blossoms on the trees and salads in the fridge. There is nothing better than finding a new combination of flavors and textures to make a daily treat. Once spring comes around a salad a day keeps my body at bay.

There is no better flavor than honey mustard! I love putting it on sandwiches, chicken and salads. This recipe is the best because the chicken marinades in it and the dressing is full of it! It is a salad that everyone will love! My husband is always skeptical about mustard because his parents literally put it on everything. When he tried this salad, he couldn’t get enough dressing on it. I am sure it will be a much requested salad in our home from here on out.

I especially love how quickly it comes together! The hardest part was preparing the chicken. But even then I could have had the entire salad together in 20 minutes. I just didn’t marinade it as long as the recipe called for. Also we aren’t much tomato lovers here, I had them but totally forgot to add them to the salad. If I were to do it for a crowd, I’d totally add them because they would add a beautiful color to the salad.

So what are you waiting for! Give this salad a try!
