Black & Gold Dinner Salad


🥗One of Top Favorite Dinner Salads! Gives me an Island Vibe...and takes me back to Summer!☀️


🍍The sweet, spicy & salty flavors all playing together make this one SO yummy! Plus, it's packed with all kinds of goodness! We always grill up a bunch of chicken on Sundays, making this super easy to throw together and easy to prep ahead! While my chicken is grilling, I go shad and chop all the veggies and toss them into a Meal Prep container for quick dinner assembly a day or 2 later! The Feta is optional for a Dairy Free Salad!
