Fall Salad

The kids have headed back to school, which makes me think of apples for the teacher.  In my house, like many I would guess, apples are a reliable fruit to offer the kids.  I know that if apples are offered, everyone will eat an apple or some slices.

While apples are delicious plain, I like to use apples (actually all foods) in different ways.  Sure, I can make apple pie, applesauce, etc., but why not use it in an entree?  With warm weather the other day, a salad seemed like the perfect dinner.  Instead of making a tossed salad, I decided to make a chicken salad that had apples in it.  I served it atop a bed of lettuce with homemade breadsticks on the side.

The good news about this meal is that it was a hit with the entire family!  It was easy to make, especially as I had leftover cooked chicken available.  I had the salad chilling in the refrigerator in about 10 minutes.  

With local orchards bursting with apples, I am looking forward to the next warm day, so we can have this salad again before the cold weather arrives for good.
