Summer Lunchin'

This week's recipes are all things that I've wanted to make for awhile.  Everything's on Pinterest! 
We started with this salad:  chicken and watermelon.  It was quite good, and surprisingly, all flavors that play together nicely.  I was a bit apprehensive about blue cheese crumbles and watermelon but was pleasantly surprised.  It also calls for chicken breast, balsamic vinegar, fresh spinach and sliced almonds.  Note:  the balsamic boiling on the stove smells terrible, but the reduced vinegar at the end of the boiling really works here.  Just don't  soak it all over the salad, a tablespoon is plenty. 
It also clocks in at 342 calories and I have enough ingredients to make it for lunch again tomorrow.  Bonus!
