A wise person once told us that you don’t make friends with salad. With this apple and chicken salad, we respectfully disagree.

Ingredients List

  1. 2 Tbsp. (30 mL) Becel® Buttery Taste margarine*
  2. 1 large Granny Smith apple or other tart apple, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
  3. 1 large onion, sliced
  4. 2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 8 oz./227 g), grilled or broiled
  5. 4 cups (1 L) mixed salad greens or mesclun
  6. 1/4 cup (60 mL) fat-free balsamic vinaigrette dressing
  7. 1/2 cup (125 mL) toasted, chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)

Directions

1. Melt Becel® Buttery Taste margarine in large skillet over medium-high heat and cook apple and onion, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 4 minutes. Reduce heat to medium and cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until apple and onion are golden brown, about 20 minutes.
