Garden Salad and Grilled Chicken with Gluten Free/Dairy Free Honey Mustard Dressing

One of the many things that I am grateful for is the fact that my husband was raised in a family that ate a lot of vegetables. Even more importantly I am grateful that his love of good and healthy food stuck in adulthood, because it makes his marriage to me, the food allergy queen easier on both of us.

About once per week, we make a giant “all in” salad, wherein we throw all of the veggies from our refrigerator (or garden in the summer) into a salad. This week produced a fairly simple salad made special with organic chicken grilled on the bar-b-que, and a hand made honey mustard dressing.  It is entirely easy to fall into a salad rut and become bored with your basic salad. Shake it up with some honey mustard and a little red onion. Enjoy!
