Beachcomber Salad

I'm tryin' to eat healthy these days. This is a killer way to eat a little better.
Beachcomber Salad (Serves 4):

1/2 lb Spring Mix Lettuce

12 oz Grilled Chicken Strips

12 oz Balsamic Vinegarette

3/4 c Bleu Cheese

1 Apple, cored, sliced into 8 pieces

1 c dried cranberries

Toss lettuce with Balsmic Vinegarette, distribute between 4 large salad bowls. Drizzle Bleu Cheese, evenly over all 4 salads, evenly distribute dried cranberries over salads, top salads with chicken, garnish each salad with 2 apple slices.

Enjoy!!!

I love it for the title! "Beachcombers" was a favourite Canadian show of mine back in the late 80's. I don't like blue cheese, but I think that a soft, crumbly goat's cheese would probably work nicely here too. Many thanks for this scrumptious looking salad recipe, Erik

Looks good, Erik. Reminds me of a Waldorf w/o the grapes. Will try. Had to chuckle when I read the name "Beachcomber" and saw chicken as the main ingredient. Expected to see seafood. Maybe it's Chicken of the Sea. Thanks, Erik.

I expected "seafoody" type ingredients too - but nonetheless it looks wonderful!!!! Better than dried starfish, small matchstick sizes of drift wood, topped with a few cracked sea biscuits!

This is a great salad Erik. I made a similar one a couple of months ago.
Had no balsamic vinegarette or bleu cheese...which I don't care for anyway, so subbed Raspberry vinegarette and some small cubed monterey jack cheese. Yummy!
