Chicken Apple Salad

One of the perks of being in the nutrition profession is free samples. Yup- super great perk. I received this salad dressing a while back from a food expo and have been meaning to create a salad to try it out with! I threw this together for a quick weeknight meal.

I did a meal prep night and chopped up a ton of veggies for stir fry and sandwiches as well as fruit for the week. I took a little cucumber here and carrot there to add to this salad but you could add ANY veggies you like. I would recommend adding the cucumber though, it tastes awesome with the apple!

I like the combo of sweet and salty from the apple and feta cheese. The chicken is a good source of protein and I also LOVE adding warm elements like chicken or beans onto cold salad.

This dressing was a tiny bit sweet for me but it paired nicely with all of the ingredients! I also threw in some homemade croutons– I will never go back to store bought croutons or crouton-less salad. I love my homemade version!
