There are 2 salads that we get at the hotel quite often that are the best salads I've ever had. I'm not sure of quantity of the following ingredients, but I don't think you could go wrong.
Chicken Chop Salad
Diced chicken (great use for leftovers)
Grapes (cut in half)
Blue cheese crumbles (could use feta if you don't like blue cheese)
Chopped dried apricot (if you didn't know - apricot and blue cheese are GREAT together!)
Blue cheese dressing (or balsamic is great).
Indian-Spiced Prawn Salad
Apples and/or pears cubed
Avocado sliced or diced
Indian spice (not sure what they use, it's not curry, maybe tandoori spice??)
If you wanted to add a lettuce I think butter crunch would be really nice.
Try making these and tell me how it went! I can't wait to try when I have a kitchen!
