Chicken Asparagus Salad

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 3 mins

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!

  4. Add chicken, apple, and asparagus, tossing to coat.

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.

This recipe is a gem! It made a lovely light meal on a hot night, w/o heating up the kitchen. I did make a couple of substitutions. I had a lot of pears on hand, so used one of them instead of the apple. It fit well with the other ingredients. I also switched a packet of Splenda for the honey in the dressing & it came out great. I think something with a crunch - maybe toasted almonds or some sunflower seeds - would be a great addition to this salad. Will add that in next time. Thanks, Teresa!
