Cran/raspberry Chicken Salad recipe with poppy seed dressing

*
Evening Sweeties, 
*
Does that opening pic make you hungry??
  It does me and I just ate not to long ago.
That's because I know what a scrumptiously
 delicious salad it is!!
*
Thought you might like to know too!!
*
Sure hope you have had a great day!!
our's was cloudy and rainy,  but our
yard so needed that quick but heavy
downpour,  it looks sooooo happy now!!
*
Our couple will be here soon,  so figured
I would try to get a lil typing in before they
arrived.  So guess I will get on with the
recipe.

Cran/Raspberry Chicken Salad recipe
*
Romaine lettuce
*
Purple onion (or white)
*
Mozzarella cheese shredded
*
dried cranberries
*
Chicken breast slivers
*
fresh raspberries
*
pecans, coarsely chopped
*
This is like a whole dinner salad that you
would maybe have crackers or rolls with and
a beverage.  It is wonderful for summer.
Easy,  no heat in the kitchen,  and
did I mention yummy yum!!

Anyway, after preparing and cutting or
tearing the lettuce,  I put it on, however
many dinner plates of salad you want
 to make.  Then I add all the rest of the
ingredients in the order in which they
are listed above.
*

*
Now you will need to make some poppy seed dressing.

I know it says Country French Chicken,
and that recipe is on there too,  but scroll
all the way to the bottom and you will
find the Poppy Seed Dressing recipe.

The salad that I modeled this after was
a salad from Bob Evans called a cranberry
Chicken salad with feta cheese,  they used
a sweet Italian Dressing, and it was delicious
but since I already had a poppy seed dressing
recipe I just decided to use that,  and we
loved it!!

Well,  Hope you enjoy this recipe,  I will
be totally shocked if you don't!!
Course,  you have to like fruit and some
sweetness to your salad or you might
not like it.

See ya tomorrow!!

Blessings and Hugs,
Nellie

Love the salad! Looks yummy! I've been adding fruit to my salads also lately. They make them so delicious! My son is even eating salad every night now with his dinner. And he only likes a little dressing and sometimes just eats it plain. Can't say I'll ever do that!

Your table top looks really pretty. I love the pitchers. Very nice!

It looks delicious! I would have to leave off the poppy seeds, it makes my divers' tick!

Wasn't that a great rain yesterday! I was in my chair and soon had Gracie in my lap, Zena laying on my feet, Dolly against my chair with her head hanging over my arm, and Sam trying to squeeze between my chair and the wall! I guess they didn't like the lightening, ha!

My pictures were from Nemo!

I got my new glasses today and whoa, I didn't know I was blind! What clear vision I have now!!

My answer machine is working again.

I made a (I guess you could call it a stew) dinner last night that had the beef chunk meat, macaroni, seasonings, and spinach with fine grated cheese on top (all in one pot!) Yes, it did tasted good! I'm about to have some now for lunch. Do you think my cooking has gone downhill? Lol! If yes, don't worry, I won't bring it as a "potluck!"
I love you all very much!
Susie
