How To Make apple pecan grilled chicken dinner salad
1Cut apples in half, leaving peel on, and core. (I like to use my melon baller to core when I want nice looking apple slices. See pic at left.) Slice into 1/4 inch slices.
2Place mixed salad greens in a large, decorative salad bowl. Add apples, (red onions if using) craisins, sugared nuts of your choice, (croutons, if using) and crumbled blue cheese.
3Warm grilled chicken breasts in microwave and slice into 1/2 inch strips. Fan on top of salad while hot and serve with your favorite bottled vinaigrette, raspberry, strawberry or pomegranate.
