The Best Summer Salad In The History of Ever  |  Sweet Tea & Saving GraceWhat you need:

  • Blueberries
  • Strawberries
  • Red and green apples
  • Spring lettuce mix
  • Heart of Romaine
  • Bleu cheese crumbles
  • Dried cranberries
  • Walnuts
  • Grilled chicken
  • Pomegranate viniagrette dressing

Mouth watering yet?

Wash all the fruit, then cut the apples into small cubes and halve or quarter the strawberries.  I had some big suckers in my pint so I had to quarter those bad boys!  Mix the spring lettuce mix and hearts of Romaine in a big bowl, then top with all the other ingredients.  Sprinkle bleu cheese, cranberries, and walnuts on top, and drizzle with pomegranate dressing.

Then….DEVOUR!

The Best Summer Salad In The History of Ever  |  Sweet Tea & Saving GraceWant to make it the “cheater” way that I did?  I bought pre-cooked and sliced grilled chicken!  It was in a bag in Publix in the deli meat section.  So. Good.  And super easy, too – no cooking involved!

I’m telling you, the combination of the bleu cheese with the sweetness of the pomegranate is just divine!

Ok, enough blabbing, right?  Print the recipe and enjoy!
