Summer Salad Recipe
Well I have decided to start adding recipes to my blog! This is my first one, I call it Craneta Crunch and Munch. I hope that get inspired and make your very own Summer Salad Recipe!
2 Grilled Chicken Breast (Seasoned with salt, pepper and lemon juice)
1 Granny Smith Apple
1/2 Cup Dried Cranberries
1/2 Cup of Fat Free Feta Cheese
1/4 Cup of Sliced Red Onion
2 Cups of Romaine Lettuce sliced thin
1 Package of Prepared Stuffing Mix
1 Tbs Lemon Juice
Preheat oven or grill to 350 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet with butter spray and spread out prepared stuffing mixture. Bake until mixture is crunchy about 10 minutes and put aside.
To prepare salad,
Slice Grilled Chicken Breasts and put aside.
Cut up the granny smith apple into medium size chunks and put it into a small bowl, toss it with lemon juice.
Slice the romaine thin into slivers rather than chunks and place in serving platter.
Top with Fat Free Feta, Cranberries, Red Onion and Sliced Chicken. For the finishing touch, crumble up the crunchy stuffing and top as croutons.
Serve with a Store bought Lite Vidalia Onion Dressing or a homemade lemon vinaigrette!
Tidbit - Instead of the traditional store bought cruton, think outside the box and come up with other creative toppings. Some ideas are Tortilla Chips, Toasted Nuts and Seeds, Toasted Pita Chips and just about any kind of stuffing can be toasted then crumbled on top.
It's a refreshing salad with alot of crunching amd munching going on! I hope that you will give it a try!
