Chicken, Apple, Cranberry and Almond Salad
January 15th, 2013
It’s Tuesday. Why can’t it be Saturday?
Something good for lunch might help soften the fact that I all I want to do is be cuddled up on the couch (is it just that time of year?) and watch New Girl and Seinfeld reruns.
So here is a quickie recipe perfect for a Tuesday. Sweet cranberries, tart apples, and a little spicy from the mustard. Crunchy and fresh- I love this salad.
I’m still clinging to my January health streak (for just a bit longer!) and this salad had enough flavor and texture to satisfy and delight. Perfect for lunch- Try it!
