Mix It Up

Since Ever Ready missed Healthy Friday how about mixing things up and  declare today  
Embrace the week by giving it a healthy start with Lemon Basil Chicken Caesar Salad Sandwich. It's a light and summer-y salad with a twist that captures your favorite chicken Caesar flavors served on whole grain bread.  
Recipe adapted from closetcooking.com
Cook's Notes:
The recipe did call for bacon which sounded very good but I opted to keep it healthier. I marinated the chicken breasts in 3/4 cup buttermilk for two hours, drained buttermilk and cooked chicken covered at 350 for 35 minutes.  
The salad was made a few hours ahead of serving time for flavors to meld.
