One of our favorite places to visit in St. George when we visit my husband’s brother is a place called Player’s Sports Grill. It is the St. George version of a Cheesecake Factory. Their menu is practically a novel and you can pretty much guarantee everything you order there is going to be delicious. The last time we were there I ordered a Chipotle Chicken Salad. I was in love!! I took a picture with my phone, wrote down the ingredients and was so excited to go home and re-create this recipe. The result was SO amazing! Why had I never thought of making a dressing with chipotle before? I love the flavor and in this dressing it added the perfect spice & smokey heat that was perfectly balanced with the honey and creamy mayonnaise. I even used my leftover dressing as a dip with grilled chicken and it was awesome. I could see adding this dressing to cream cheese and having a killer chip dip. Really, the flavors were just delightful no matter how you serve them!! If you are a vegetarian, this salad would be a MUST for me. I took several bites before I realized my chicken was still on the grill. There is so much flavor in this salad you wouldn’t even miss the meat. A new favorite salad for this summer for sure. Hope you enjoy 😉
