waldorf chicken salad:
spring mix lettuce
Granny Smith apple
red seedless grapes
grilled chicken breast
balsamic vinaigrette dressing
*You decide how much of each ingredient you want in your salad, so play with it, you can always add more.
(I bought the big Spring Lettuce Mix from Costco for about $4, the grilled chicken breasts strips in a 2 pack at Costco for $10, the only place I was able to find to candied walnuts was at Walmart in their baking aisle for about $2.50 & I bought the balsamic vinaigrette dressing at Sprouts)
1. In a large bowl, combine as much lettuce that you want into the bowl, cut 1/4-1/2 of your Granny Smith apple into chunks & sprinkle in bowl put the rest of the apple into a ziploc for next time, cut as many of the chicken strips as you want into chunks & sprinkle in bowl, cut red grapes in half & add to bowl, sprinkle walnuts in to bowl, pour dressing over top (a little goes a long way) & then using a spatula stir your salad in the large bowl until the dressing coats all of your lettuce and ingredients. (If you like Gorgonzola cheese you can sprinkle that on top as well).
2. Transfer your salad to another bowl and enjoy!

2 TB. dijon mustard
