Recipe: Leftover Salad

Hey Guys!
I was feeling inspired after seeing this recipe from one of my favourite blogs; Sweet Thing.
I came home and decided to finally use up my yams that had been sitting in the crisper for awhile, and I got to thinking of how many people still think salad consists only of lettuce, and a few chopped veggies. This one I made includes everything from chicken, to bean salad (yes, a salad within a salad).

Here's what I added:

A heaping handful of Arugula
1 chopped Avocado
Bean Salad reminence
Left over Chicken Strips
2 chopped and roasted Yams
       (roast in olive oil+Salt&Pepper around 400F (200C) until they get nice and brown)
Drizzle some Olive Oil and Balsamic over top
Finish with a smattering of Goat Cheese

Optional: Nuts! Unfortunately I didn't have any, but they would have been good!

Included are a few magazines I'm reading. I love this Peppermint Magazine, (out of Australia) about style, sustainability, and substance. I am not telling you how much I paid for it, but I don't care- it was worth it! And I can't wait for Perks of Being a Wallflower! If you haven't read it do so. NOW!
