Salad for Dinner


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

Ingredients:

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

Vinaigrette:

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

Directions:

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.
