Summer Salad

I have been enjoying making dinner that I only have to assemble.  No cooking needed.  It makes the afternoon a little less busy and keeps me out of the kitchen longer.  My 1 year old has taken a liking to being held all.of.the.time….this leaves little room for cooking.  Its just a phase that will pass, so in the meantime, we will have quick summer dinners.
I found these rolls in the freezer section.  They take only 10 minutes to reheat in the oven and they are so good!!  I really love warm bread with a crispy crust, and a soft middle.

This recipe wont have measurements.  I made enough salad for 3 adults and a toddler.  So, this is just the ingredients.

I tossed some lettuce and baby spinach with raspberry vinaigrette.

I then layered on some shredded rotisserie chicken.  I just picked one up at the grocery store and shred it while it was still warm.  It has wonderful flavor.

Then I added some sliced kiwi, strawberries and avocado.

Top it all with some candied pecans or walnuts and drizzle a tiny bit more of dressing.

Serve with this warm bread and enjoy a light summer meal.
