Chicken Asparagus Salad

READY IN: 8mins
Recipe by TGirl

You can have this light, tasty dinner on the table in less than 10 minutes-just buy a deli chicken on your way home from work, or use leftovers from Sunday's roast. The only cooking you'd have to do is the asparagus, which takes only 2 or 3 minutes! This is great for a hot summer's night, when you don't want to heat up your whole kitchen making a great dinner!

Great salad! I made this with iceburg lettuce and fresh spinach as my greens and added a little feta cheese. If you like a little sweeter salad, I think dried cranberries would be good too.
