Pesto Vinaigrette Recipe + Chicken Beet Salad
I love making vinaigrettes, and this pesto vinaigrette is one of my favorites. I’m a fan of salad dressings that are zesty and tangy and this fits the bill, with a hint of sweet from the addition of honey.
I made this pesto vinaigrette for the Pesto Pasta Salad recipe, but when I sampled it on a chicken, feta, and beet salad it was heaven. Since then I’ve made two batches in two weeks.
You guys, it’s so good.
I used two teaspoons of honey in the recipe, but if you like sweet vinaigrettes feel free to add more.
Let’s talk a little more about this salad. I don’t post salads on the blog often because I tend to toss random ingredients together in a bowl for lunch, but this deserves a little bit of recognition. This salad used baby spinach leaves, grilled chicken, sundried tomatoes (I use julienne cut in olive oil), feta, and roasted beets. Toss with the pesto vinaigrette and it’s money.
