Waldorf-ish Chicken Salad

This was Jessie's serving (on a small salad plate)
This was Jeff's serving (on a dinner plate) 

Notice the difference between what is acceptable between a guy and a girl. 

 Make note of the size you are making or your calorie, carb, and fat content gets much higher! Just because it's a salad, doesn't mean it's an "all you can eat" kind of meal. :)

Serves 2

The addition of crisp fennel, refreshing mint, sweet honey and tangy yogurt puts a delightful spin on the classic Waldorf salad. Serve as a side dish, dessert or even breakfast.


12 oz cooked chicken breast
3 cups Fresh Organic Spinach
1/2 cup walnuts, toasted
1/2 to 1 Honey Crisp Apple
1/2 cup strawberries (cut into cubes)
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup feta
1/4 cup chopped red onion


You know how to make a Salad. I don't need to give you directions but I do want to let you know that the recipe DOES NOT call for Ranch.  If you need dressing, please use a light vinaigrette or a balsamic vinaigrette.  It only needs a touch of dressing. 

If you have a salad and douse it in dressing that defeats the purpose of having a healthy salad. That adds unnecessary carbs, fat, and calories to the meal.  Just be good if you're wanting to be good... don't be fake good! Enjoy this refreshing, light-on-the-thighs kind of meal :)
