Fall Chicken Salad Recipe

Ingredients

  • 8 oz Spring Lettuce Mix or Romaine
  • 2-3 Small Apples (I use like Honey Crisp)
  • 1/3 Cup Roasted Pecans
  • 1/3 Cup Dried Cranberries
  • 1/4 Cup Crumbled Bleu Cheese (Can substitute for feta)
  • Cooked and Diced Seasoned Chicken
  • 1 Lemon

Dressing

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1.5 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 clove garlic

Instructions

1. Prepare the chicken for the salad. I like to grill my chicken but it can be
cooked in an oven or airfryer. For a quick meal use a store bought rotisserie chicken. Once cooked, chop into bite sized pieces.

2. Roast the pecans. Roast them by lining a tray with parchment paper and
placing the pecans in a single layer. Toast them for about 4-5 minutes at 350
degrees F watching carefully to avoid burning. Place the lettuce in a large
bowl. Top with pecans, cranberries, and bleu cheese. Add the prepared
chicken.

3. Slice the apples into thin slices. Toss the slices with 1-2 teaspoons of freshly
squeezed lemon juice. Add to the salad.

4. For the dressing: finely mince the garlic. Combine all the ingredients in a jar
with a lid. Shake until well combined. Add salt and pepper to taste.

5. Top the salad with dressing right before serving and enjoy.
