salad Fruit and Nut Salad adapted slightly from Amy Bench 1 bunch green leaf lettuce, chopped (I used two bags of prechopped Romaine lettuce) 2 Granny Smith apples, peeled and cubed 2 cups strawberries, sliced 2 cups red grapes, halved 2-3 chicken breasts 1/2 of a white onion 1 bag Dried Cherry, Cranberry and Pecan Salad Pizazz (I found mine at Super Target by the bagged salad) 1 bottle Brianna’s Poppy seed or Raspberry Vinaigrette Dressing (sometimes we do half of each) 1 (4 ounce) container crumbled feta (optional) salt and pepper Boil chicken with salt, pepper, and onion. Once cooled, cube chicken. Put everything in a large bowl. Toss with dressing right before serving. Serves 15-20 people. Recipe Notes: 1) You may not need the whole bottle of dressing. 2) If you can't find the Salad Pizzaz you can use 1/2 cup of cranberrries and a half cup of pecans. 3) If you want to carmelize your own pecans do the following: In a skillet over medium heat, stir 1/4 cup sugar until melted. It will eventually melt if you just turn up the heat and wait. Continue stirring gently until sugar has melted and then toss in the pecans and keep stirring until they are coated. Carefully transfer nuts onto waxed paper. Allow to cool, and break into pieces.
