chicken, goat cheese, and apple salad with toasted walnuts.
Tonight felt like a salad kind of night. In part because I was craving Golden Spoon frozen yogurt, and since it had been such a warm day a salad just seemed right. ” />I figured for those reasons we would eat a nice, healthy, low-carb salad and then head to the “G Store” (as Emma calls it) for a “T-R-E-A-T” (Emma’s now learning to spell so our days of spelling this word are numbered).
Chicken, Goat Cheese and Apple Salad with Toasted Walnuts
What You’ll Need:
4 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil, divided ($.32 at $.08/tablespoon)
1 1/2 pounds chicken breast, cubed ($2.66 at $1.77/lb)

1/4 cup toasted walnuts ($1.50 at $5.99/lb)
1 granny smith apple, sliced thin ($.53 at $1.29/lb)
2 oz. goat cheese, crumbled ($.60 at $2.99 for 5 oz)
6 cups shredded green or romaine lettuce ($.88 at $.88 per head)

Saute slices of shallots in 1 tablespoon olive oil until soft. Add another tablespoon of olive oil and cook the chicken, stirring occasionally, until cooked through, 8-10 minutes. Sprinkle with salt, remove from pan and chill.
When chicken has cooled, toss together in a medium bowl the shallots, chicken, sliced green apple, walnuts and romaine. Dress with remaining olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle with goat cheese.
