Artichoke, Kale, Chicken & Brown Rice Salad

As the weather gets warmer, salads can make a great meal. Can be eaten straightaway but is even tastier if you refrigerate overnight and eat for lunch the following day!

Artichoke, Kale, Chicken & Brown Rice Salad
2 cups cooked brown rice (can make ahead of time)
¼ – ½ cup diced red onion, to taste
2 cups chopped kale, steams removed or baby kale leaves, chopped
6.5 oz Jar Cara Mia Marinated Artichoke Hearts
Juice of one lemon
Handful of fresh cilantro, chopped
4 sprigs-worth of fresh mint leaves, chopped
STAR California Extra Virgin Olive Oil to taste
2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cooked and torn into bite-sized pieces

Assemble the salad: In a large bowl, mix together all the ingredients including the marinade from the Cara Mia Marinated Artichoke Hearts . Toss until well coated. Taste and add STAR California Extra Virgin Olive Oil to taste. Keep chilled until serving.

About Me

Cara Mia
Cara Mia brand was started by an artichoke grower co-op in 1955, in the “artichoke capital” of the world, Castroville, CA. The co-op opened as a freezer operator with the intent of providing consumers another means to enjoy the edible thistle all year around. The venture proved so successful that a marinating line was added in 1958. Soon sales of the marinated produce far surpassed the frozen line as consumers enjoyed the proprietary marinade that dressed the tender leaves. The Borges Group acquired Cara Mia and its proprietary spice mix/marinade recipe in 2001. Today Cara Mia is the #1 selling brand of marinated artichokes. Look for them, and the other Cara Mia marinated vegetable items, in the Produce Dept.
