Summer is here people. I have said it before and I will say it again...for me Summer means salads.
Nothing is yummier to me than a heaping plate full of salady goodness (okay maybe I also like a big bag of Starbursts).
On Father's Day, this was on the menu. I think that I might have enjoyed this meal more than the Man of the House. Don't get me wrong, he enjoyed it. I just pretty much "yummed" and "oohed" the whole time while eating. I was just shy of licking my plate, and I can probably attribute my good manners to the fact that I don't want my Little Men licking their plates for every meal thereafter.
The homemade mango bbq sauce marinates the chicken to perfection. The grilled chicken was SO good. SO good you guys. I am pretty sure I ate half a chicken breast before I even assembled my salad.
The grilled corn was insane. It added such a good flavor and texture to the salad. The dressing was a perfect topping to such a fresh salad.
Yeah I liked it...did you guys get that already?
Go get your Summer on and enjoy a salad or two for me.
