NANCYS GRILLED CHICKEN SALAD

Nancy's Colorful Salad

What You’ll Need:

Mixed Italian Salad Greens (*See Note)

2 – Grilled Boneless Chicken Breasts – Sliced

2 – Hard boiled eggs sliced

1 – Yellow Golden Delicious Apple – (peel, seed, chop – divide)

12 – Strawberries (Wash, core, quarter – divide)

6 – Slices Bacon – (fried, chopped into pieces)

1 – Container Crumbled Feta Cheese

Ken’s Raspberry vinaigrette dressing

Assemble all ingredients (evenly divided) into two individual salad bowls/dishes and serve with the Raspberry vinaigrette and enjoy!

NOTE:  Our fruit and veggie market sells a variety of all ready cleaned and chopped lettuce selection choices in plastic containers for about $4.99.  Although much more expensive than a head of lettuce or a stalk of romaine, for us it’s well worth the cost of having it already cleaned and chopped as well as the option of picking up mixtures that we otherwise might not want to take the time to make during a hectic work week.  The other plus, it’s enough greens to make multiple salads during the week for us.
