So since I felt a bit of success with my Tri-Color Pasta recipe I thought I’d go out on a limb and post another one. This is just an easy salad I threw together with stuff I had on hand and it has turned out to be a minor hit this summer for BBQ’s and get togethers. It is SO easy. All you need is lettuce, apples, Craisins (dried cranberries), oven roasted almond accents, feta cheese, strawberries, an onion, cooked cut up chicken (optional) and my favorite salad dressing – Brianna’s Poppy Seed dressing (the one with the peach on the front).
First thing you need to do is spin your lettuce with a salad spinner. Why? Because it’s fun. Especially if you have extremely talented spinners on hand to do the spinning for you.
Next I like to combine the apples, feta cheese, almonds, and Craisins in a bowl. You don’t have to do this, I just love the feta cheese all over everything…and I love to snack on this yummy mixture before I eat the salad. Snacking along the way is the only redeeming quality I’ve found in cooking.
