Apple Pecan Chicken Salad

15 Sep

Holy yum! This salad tastes like fall. You could change up this salad a million different ways and it would still be delicious. Don’t have apples? Use pears. Don’t have pecans? Use walnuts.

This dinner salad was my favorite meal of the week. I love using Tyson Grilled and Ready chicken strips when I don’t feel like spending a ton of time in the kitchen and they worked out perfectly as the protein for this salad.

Apple Pecan Chicken Salad

Servings: 2
Time: 15 minutes
Level: Easy

1/3 c. pecans
2 c. spring mix lettuce
1/2 c. chicken, cooked and sliced or shredded
2 red delicious apples, chopped
red onion, sliced (optional)
1/4 c. mozzarella cheese

Dressing:
1/4 c. olive oil
1 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp. spicy brown mustard
1/4 tsp. black pepper

Toast pecans in the oven until slightly browned. Be careful not to burn. Top lettuce with chicken, apples, onion, cheese, and toasted pecans. In a small bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, mustard, and pepper. Pour over salad. Yum!
