Chicken Apple Hazelnut Salad--the combo in it self sounds delightful!!
5 Romaine lettuce leaves
5 red leaf lettuce leaves
1 chopped red apple
1/3 red onion, cut into thin rings
1/4 c. chopped filbert nuts
1/4 c. croutons
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 grilled or poached chicken breasts, julienne
Combine all ingredients except chicken to a large bowl.
1/4 c. lemon juice
1 T. light rice vinegar
1/4 tsp. Dijon mustard
2 cloves minced garlic
1/4 c. olive oil
2 T. canola oil
1/4 tsp. fresh ground pepper
Toss salad with 2-3 Tbsp of salad dressing initially. Some of the dressing may be used to baste the chicken while grilling.
Croutons--amounts of croutons one will consume are a personal thing, so i save them out of the salad to let the individual put them on themselves. Same with the cheese.
Sub = i didn't have any red onion, so i added a 1/4 c. blueberries to the salad. Just as yummy!!
