Chicken, Pecan, Apple Chip Salad
I am transferring all of the recipes from my soon to be defunct food blog to this blog! Here's a good one!
Let’s talk about Mommy Lunch, because that’s a thing.
And, I’m not talking about the whole eat-what-your-kids-leave-on-their-plates kind of lunch.
I’m talking about a lunch that you will enjoy and will leave you satisfied and maybe even make you feel you ate at a restaurant.
Bonus points if it’s fun, like this Chicken, Pecan, and Apple Chip Salad!
I love having a fun salad for lunch! I like that I can prep all of the ingredients in the beginning of the week and then quickly assemble the salad for lunch each day.
I used the same dressing that I used on the
Apple Pomegranate Salad
. I feel like I could drink that stuff
Chicken, Pecan, Apple Chip Salad (31 Days of Recipes from Aldi)
Full of beautiful colors and a variety of delightful textures, this salad will get you through until supper time! Add the salad ingredients in accordance to your preference!
Salad greens (I used spring mix and spinach)
Cooked chicken (great use for leftovers or a rotisserie chicken)
Apple Chips (Aldi carries some yummy ones in fall)
Thinly sliced red onion
Pecan Halves (you can toast them, but I didn't
Apple Balsamic Dressing:
¼ cup balsamic vinaigrette dressing
2 tablespoons apple butter
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
Salt and pepper to taste
Top a bed of salad greens with chicken, apple chips, red onion, feta, and pecan halves. You are the boss of the toppings, so add the toppings to your preference.
In a small bowl, whisk together the balsamic vinaigrette, apple butter, and pure maple syrup. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Drizzle the dressing on the salad and enjoy!
