  • ½ whole Granny Smith, Cored And Sliced Thin
  • 1 whole Leftover Cooked Chicken Breast, Sliced Into Bite Size Pieces
  • 2 ounces, weight Walnuts, Toasted In A Dry Pan Until Fragrant
  • ¼ cups Dried Cherries
  • 2 Tablespoons Blue Cheese, More Or Less To Taste
  • _____
  • FOR THE VINAIGRETTE:
  • ½ cups Raspberry Blush Vinegar
  • 3 Tablespoons Fresh Lemon Juice, Strained To Catch Seeds And Pulp
  • 3 teaspoons Honey, Or More To Taste
  • 2 teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • Fresh Ground Black Pepper To Taste

Preparation

For the salad:

Start by adding the arugula (or the chopped romaine) to a large bowl. Top with sliced apple, chicken, toasted walnuts, dried cherries and blue cheese. Toss, plate and drizzle with desired amount of the vinaigrette.

For the vinaigrette:

Add all the vinaigrette ingredients to a medium-sized jar that has a tight-fitting lid. Shake, taste, and adjust if needed.

Store any remaining dressing in the fridge; just remember to take it out about 20 minutes before using it again to thin out (it solidifies in the refrigerator).
