wolf river apple grilled chicken salad with maple french press vinaigrette

When you grill chicken do you always make extra so you’ll have plenty to top your lunch salads for the next few days? We love big salads around here, and we’re always dreaming up new combinations and dressings. This one was inspired by a trip to the apple orchard.

spring greens and/or baby spinach

Wolf River apples, unpeeled, sliced thin (or other fresh, orchard apples)

feta cheese or blue cheese, crumbled

thinly sliced purple onion

trail mix (combination of sunflower seeds, nuts, pumpkin seeds and dried fruit)

homemade croutons

grilled chicken chunks

crispy bacon, cooled and crumbled

maple french press vinaigrette dressing

Pile plates with ingredients in the order listed (measurements don’t really matter here.) Top with the vinaigrette and enjoy!

    We’ll just be calling this dinner tonight! Thanks. We’ve been picking apples by the bucketload and I did make extra chicken last night for salads. 🙂 Looking forward to the vinaigrette as well.
