Camp Dinner: Roasted Chicken and Avocado Salad with Honey Mustard Vinaigrette

Camp Dinner: Roasted Chicken and Avocado Salad with Honey Mustard Vinaigrette

Camping isn’t always associated with fresh food. But salad can be a quick and easy way to get your greens even when you’re sleeping outside. This sweet lil recipe comes from our friend and camp cook, Anne Assassi, who believes camp cuisine can be both delicious and nutritious.

This salad calls for butter lettuce and radicchio, which add texture, color and a unique blend of nutrients and anti-oxidants. Topping it off with mouth-watering rotisserie chicken, sharp cheese, and tasty avocado guarantees that you’re getting enough calories, protein, and fat to keep you satiated on your outside adventure! Bonus: you can usually buy living butter lettuce at the grocery store which will last longer outdoors in case you want to extend your trip or save this meal for the last day.
