Honey Lemon Grilled Chicken Salad with Homemade Dressing

Welcome back to me – sorry I’ve been absent on the blog posting lately. This past week was a little nutty with finishing a huge paper for grad school and a big weekend at work. It doesn’t look like things will be slowing down anytime soon, which is ok with me. Cheers to a great week ahead and the beginning of summer!

To celebrate warm temperatures and summer hours starting for work this week, I’ve got a great new homemade salad. This honey-lemon chicken is enhanced with some diced basil on top. I served mine over a fresh summer salad and whipped up my own lemon-honey dressing. Pretty darn tasty if you ask me.

Yumm!
