This summer salad is light and refreshing and works for lunch or dinner.


  • 3-1/2 cup seasoned chicken breasts, cooked and chopped
  • 1 small zucchini, diced into small cubes
  • 2/3 cup assorted color cherry tomatoes, halved
  • ½ avocado, diced
  • ½ bunch asparagus, roasted & chopped (click here for a great recipe for roasted asparagus)
  • 1-2 scallions/green onions, diced
  • 1/3 cup fresh basil, chopped (I used 1 tsp. dried)
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard (I didn’t have any so I used regular mustard)
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste


In a large bowl, combine chicken, zucchini, tomatoes, avocado, asparagus, green onion and basil, and gently toss.  Add the Dijon mustard, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper and toss again until combined.

Taste salad and season with additional salt & pepper, if needed.

My name is Patty & I'm a full-time homemaker. I've been a full-time homemaker most of my adult life. I thought I'd probably go back to work when my kids were grown, and I did briefly, but I came back home as soon as my first grandchild was born. I learned that home was my favorite place to be and homemaking was and is my calling.
