People say that it’s the water in Jersey that makes the bagels so good. And the pizza crust. And the sub rolls. See a pattern yet? Frankly, I don’t think it’s a coincidence that I’m a carboholic — which is really unfortunate for my waistline. One thing we lack in Jersey however, is a place that serves a mean salad. Enter my “west coast bestie,” Sabrina of Sabrina and the City, who is responsible for introducing me to the Nordstrom Cafe – a lunchtime gem – and home of my go-to salad when I have to eat on the road — the Mediterranean Chicken Salad. Well, this salad is not just for the road any more because they sell the delicious, tangy dressing! So now I can recreate it at home!
Mediterranean Chicken Salad Recipe (makes 2-3 servings based on portion size)

1/4 cup sliced sun-dried tomatoes
1/4 cup halved kalamata olives
1/4 cup reduced fat feta cheese
1/4 cup Dijon Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing
Toss lettuce, sun-dried tomatoes, olives and dressing. Sprinkle feta cheese on top. Serve. Enjoy.
