Chopped Tomato Mozzarella Salad with Chicken Sausage & Avocado
The apple chicken sausage helps make your traditional tomato/mozzarella pairing into a more filling meal, the avocado adds creaminess and good fats, and the crunchy romaine brings it all together into one hearty dinner salad.
Slice the sausage into coins and saute these in a large skillet over medium heat until nicely browned.
While the sausage is browning, halve your tomatoes and mozzarella, chop your avocado, and chop the romaine.
Divide the chopped romaine among four dinner plates and top the salads evenly with the sausage, tomatoes, mozzarella, and avocado.
Shake your balsamic dressing to recombine it before drizzling it over the finished salads, which you can serve garnished with chopped fresh basil, if desired/available.
I just threw together a basic balsamic vinaigrette for today's salad, but you can use bottled dressing if you prefer. I also added fresh basil from my garden because: Yay, it's finally spring -- but the basil just kicks things up a notch and is optional, if you don't happen to have on hand. You can of course always add more veggies or otherwise jazz up this simple dinner salad base; make it your own!
