Recipe: BBQ Chicken Salad with Cranberries, Pecans and Apples

I cannot remember a year when I have grown such a variety of lettuce. The other day as I was harvesting the remaining greens from my very first lettuce pallet, I suddenly had a craving for bbq chicken.  So I thought, hey why not combine the two.  After all, people make Chicken Cesar salad all the time, right?  Why not try a bbq chicken salad instead?

Oh snap was it good.  The Handsome Husband even liked it too.

Here is the recipe.


  • 4 oz Mixed Salad Greens
  • 1/4 cup Dried Cranberries
  • 1/8 cup Toasted Pecans, chopped
  • 1/2 Fuji Apple, sliced thin
  • 1/2 BBQ Chicken Breast, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons Ken’s Raspberry Pecan Salad Dressing


Fill a large bowl with mixed salad greens {preferably home grown}, rinse and pat dry with a paper towel or run it through a salad spinner.  Arrange salad on dinner plate, add chicken, cranberries, apples and pecans.  Add salad dressing and dig in!
