Power Salad

Well, it's getting HOT, HOT, HOT here and I'm turning more and more toward filling our menu with salads.  This salad in particular is a crowd pleaser in our house and one that's asked for on nearly a weekly basis.  It's quick, easy, and has something to please everyone.  More an "everything but the kitchen sink" salad, these simple serve as guidelines for developing your own Power Salad.  Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Power Salad

Lots of Salad Greens (We love spring mix)
Red Bell Pepper
Sunflower seeds/slivered almonds
Dried Cranberries
Cooked Chicken (lightly seasoned with salt and pepper)

1. Cook and season your chicken.  We like our just seasoned with salt and pepper to keep it light, but you can season however you want.

2. Chop/shred your veggies.  I'm coming to liking my carrots shredding in everything.

3. Top with seeds, cranberries, and feta.  Add your favorite dressing.  I like Lighthouse's Blueberry Pomegranate while my husband just likes his dressed with Balsamic Vinegar.

4. Dig in!
