Salad – Inspired by Nordy’s

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! Dijon Balsamic VinaigretteSo now I can recreate it at home!


Mediterranean Chicken Salad Recipe (makes 2-3 servings based on portion size)


3 cups chopped heart of romaine lettuce

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.

  1. OMG…I LOVE that salad!!! Thanks for the shout out & I think I may need to stop by the cafe at some point to by the dressing so I can make it at home too! I cooked last night but didn’t take pictures!
