You know it’s spring when the weeks start to fly by. I looked at my calendar this morning in early morning haze and couldn’t believe my eyes. One week till the end of April?! Insane! I had great plans to celebrate springs arrival and lo and behold spring is almost over! Oh well… That just means I will push all my picnic parties and road trip plans to May.
However, I couldn’t let this week pass by without telling you about the most delicious salad I had the privilege of eating last week. This farmers market salad from Pronto’s was comprised of roasted chicken, mixed greens, corn, avocado, tomatoes, almonds, cornbread croutons, and a creamy tarragon dressing.
Did you read that? Cornbread croutons. Avocado. Tarragon dressing.
I was literally in heaven. I know I say that a lot but this salad made me swoon. The flavors and various textures blended together and created an unforgettable dish. The cornbread croutons were crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. The avocado was perfectly ripe and balanced the creamy Tarragon dressing. The original dish comes with dates and goat cheese but I’m not a fan of either so I left them off. I am looking to fix a homemade version of this beloved salad during the weekend. I don’t know if I can do cornbread croutons since a pan of cornbread is more likely to be devoured with a big bowl of chili than in a salad. However, I will try my best.
I hope you all have a delightful and delicious weekend. Enjoy your April before it’s too late!
