I have been absolutely *craving* this salad since I made it, and added it to our weekly plan twice since. The first time I snapped a pic and shared it on Instagram, and got dozens of messages coming in asking for the recipe. It’s easy, quick, and probably going to be one of my favorite summer dinners this year. I marinated some white beans with lemon juice, olive oil, garlic and parsley. Then I whisked up a simple creamy lemon dijon vinaigrette, and used it to dress a big crispy green bowl of spinach and shaved Brussels sprouts topped with the beans, prosciutto, leftover grilled chicken and shaved parmesan cheese – chef’s kiss! Save this one for an easy weeknight dinner, or. make it in a bigger batch for some top notch spring entertaining!
