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!!
