Layered Chicken, Apple, and Blue Cheese Salad
3 cups shredded chicken
1 red onion, thinly sliced
1 cup celery, thinly sliced
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, cut in half
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1 apple (I like Granny Smith or Gala), thinly sliced and tossed in lemon juice
1/2 cup blue cheese (gorgonzola works nicely as well)
*Greens mix of your choice
Dressing of your choice.
Layer the salad beginning with the greens. You can choose how you layer the ingredients but I suggest keeping the tomatoes and cheese towards the top so they don't get crushed or soggy.
I've made this for salad luncheons many times. I prepare it the night before and cover it with wrap. It stores very nicely and is always a hit.
* I've been purchasing the cellophane boxes of greens at BJ's. They offer a few different greens selections and all stay nice and fresh the entire week. It's a great value for your money.
This salad went very nicely with crusty bread and a slightly chilled glass of Coppola Chardonnay.
