Ingredients

Dressing Ingredients:
  • 1/4 cup brewed Bigelow English Teatime Black Tea {I brew more and then use some for the dressing and some for the marinade}
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
    - 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
    - 1 1/2 cups raspberries
  • 2 tablespoons blueberries
 
Marinade Ingredients:
 
Salad Ingredients:
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 4 cups spinach and Arugula lettuce leaves {these are easy to find already mixed together in the pre-made salad containers}
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts, toasted in 1 teaspoon of butter
  • 1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles

Instructions

For the dressing:
Add tea, olive oil, red wine vinegar, honey, lemon juice, and kosher salt to a food processor or blender. Give it one spin to start mixing ingredients. Add raspberries and blueberries and process on high until it's completely mixed and the fruit is pureed all the way. Refrigerate overnight. 
 
For the marinade and chicken:
Combine remainder of brewed tea {about a cup}, olive oil, and honey in a large dish with a secure lid. Shake and mix well. Uncover and add chicken. Cover and flip container to ensure that chicken is coated in marinade. Refrigerate overnight.
 
To assemble salad:
Toast walnuts in butter and allow to cool. Remove chicken from marinade and discard marinade. Grill chicken until done. Allow to cool for ten minutes before thinly slicing into strips.
Lay out your salad and top with raspberries, blueberries, walnuts, blue cheese and chicken strips. Drizzle with salad dressing.
