Salad for Dinner

Dinner tonight was a salad with some leftover chicken. This is such and easy salad to make!


Spring mix or baby spinach

Chopped Granny Smith apple (s)

Candied pecans (buy from Trader Joe's)

Crumbled Gorgonzola

Finely chopped red onion

Leftover chicken, sliced


1/4 cup rice wine vinegar

3/4 cup canola oil

1 tablespoon dijion mustard

1 teaspoon dried oregano

2 teaspoons sugar

salt and pepper to taste


In a large bowl combine the spring mix, apple, gorgonzola, pecans and red onion.  In a small jar combine the vinergrette ingredients. Shake the jar and add a little dressing to the salad. It is unlikely that you would use all the dressing - unless you are making salad to feed 20 people.

Warm the leftover chicken and place the chicken slices on top of each salad plate.

This is also a lovely lunch to make when you like to have a nice lunch for friends.
