Recipe type: Salad
Serves: 4
  • large handful of fresh arugula, roughly chopped
  • large handful of mixed greens, roughly chopped
  • 2 large handfuls of romaine lettuce, roughly chopped
  • 2 celery sticks, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 large cucumber, peeled then diced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, diced
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1 container goat cheese
  • 1½ cups dried cranberries
  • 2 chicken breasts seasoned with salt and pepper
  • 1 pack of Good Seasons Italian Dressing Mix
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • a little less than ¼ cup of balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced (1 teaspoon minced)
  • Pinch of salt and pepper
  1. Make the dressing by adding all of the ingredient to a bowl and whisk. Set aside to let flavors come together.
  2. Add olive oil to sauté pan and place over medium-high heat. Add chicken breasts and cook until no longer pink, about 3-4 minutes per side. Set aside to cool then cut into chunks. You could also buy a rotisserie chicken and use the meat from that.
  3. Once all of the ingredients are prepared, add them to a large bowl, gently mix and serve with Italian dressing.
Measurements for this salad are estimates. Feel free to add more of less of any ingredient as you can't really mess it up. If you decide to make a larger salad, double the dressing recipe.
