This salad is a great easy, light summer meal, using a delicious homemade dressing. Serves 2.
Bag of lettuce – we used one with romaine, iceberg, cabbage, and carrots
1 10.5 ounce container of mandarin oranges
Almond slivers or crushed almonds – just a handful
2 cooked chicken breasts – we grilled ours
Optional : Bacon – I know it sounds weird but Michael added a some diced bacon into the salad randomly and it was really good! Bacon makes everything better.
