simple salad recipe

As much as I love all the foods that taste SO good but aren't so good for you (French Fries, Pizza, Burgers, you know)..... I have to admit that I am a huge salad lover. One of my favorite salad recipe's is also the easiest ever... I promise. Especially when you are making a salad for one person. It sucks making a salad for one person and you have to spend 10 minutes just cutting everything. I originally got the idea from Stone Oven. They have a Goat Cheese Chicken salad that is so yummy (btw, I just noticed on their menu this salad now comes with bacon instead of cranberries, kind of a bummer because the cranberries are part of what makes it so good).

you will need:
  • lettuce (any kind you like) I prefer iceberg and spinach
  • dried cranberries
  • cashews
  • goat cheese
  • balsamic vinaigrette
one or both of the following:
  • granny smith apple - sliced (optional)
  • chicken breast (optional)

Place as much lettuce as you can eat in a bowl and sprinkle with as much dried cranberries, cashews and goat cheese as you like. Drizzle with balsamic vinaigrette. And top with either some sliced granny smith apples or chicken..... or if you have a bigger appetite, Both! Enjoy!

do any of you have any super simple salad recipe's to share?

  1. You can't go wrong with crasins and goat cheese

  2. Yum this looks so good! I love goat cheese! And it's nice that you can leave out the chicken and do apples since I'm a vegetarian :) Totally trying this!

  3. MMmmm hold the goat cheese and I'll take it.
    Crasins have become my new salad staple. Mmm and the apples.
    I am so glad that I'm not the only salad lover out there - especially the fruit / veggie hybrid kind.
