Lemon Balsamic Salad

This is a fun little salad that I threw together with some leftovers, including my last piece of Chicken Piccata.

1/2 head of romaine lettuce
1/2 avocado
piece of chicken breast
1 cup green beans
1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese

I topped it with a lemon balsamic vinaigrette dressing:

3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

Combine lemon juice, vinegar, salt, pepper, and garlic in a medium bowl. Whisking constantly, add the oil in a thin stream.

Of course, the ingredient amounts can be altered, this is just what was leftover in my fridge.  It was quite tasty and healthy!
