I-95 Northbound on Easter Sunday was not a Funday! Alas, I am grateful that we made it home safely. The corny South of the Border sight always brings a smile, or smirk to my face. So in honor of our neighbors south of the (US) border, I am posting a Mexican Chicken Entree Salad …mmmm; bring on the chips!

3 Tbs olive oil
3 Tbs honey
