Recipe by GertieGirl
I have been trying to eat more fruits and vegetables, so salads have been on the menu almost every day. I've gotten tired of the same old.. same old.. I don't think I can look another piece of lettuce in the eye for quite some time, so this is what I came up with. Feel free to add or delete fruits and veggies as you see fit. This adjusts easily to make more than one serving. I find this to be 1 main dish serving, or two servings if being served along with something else. Easily adapted to Vegan.. just leave out the chicken, or replace with seasoned tofu.

I loved this salad Gertie as did my very picky dh. He ate his plain and enjoyed it very much. I on the other hand tried the raspberry vinaigrette and was very pleased. The vinaigrette was bold and flavorful and was perfect with the vegetables, fruit and cheese. I used red and green seedless grapes and unfortunately omitted the tomatoes as I was out of them. The salad was delicious and very filling. Thank you for sharing your recipe. Made for Fall Pac 2011.
