Chicken Pear Salad

I don’t know what it is about the flavor combinations in this salad, but it is on point!  One evening last June I forgot that I needed to make dinner.  I know that it happens every evening, but sometimes I just forget.  Anyone else? Well it was hot and I didn’t want to heat up the kitchen with the range so I got creative.  I went through the fridge & pantry and this is what I ended up with.  I should call it the “Last Minute Salad” but that doesn’t sound too tasty, does it?

bacon fat
sea salt & pepper to taste
quinoa, uncooked
dried cherries
almonds, sliced (or chopped walnuts or pecans….they all work and taste good, so your choice!)

1. Saute chicken in bacon fat and season with sea salt & pepper and cook quinoa according to package instructions.
2. Mix everything together and top with chicken and drizzle salad dressing.
