I love to eat salads. Salad is my go-to lunch. And as the season changes, so does my mood. It might be a traditional chicken salad. Or a fish taco salad. Or it might be like this one, a bed of greens with all sorts of good stuff on top.
This salad holds all kinds of seasonal flavors like apples and cranberries. Chicken and cheddar add to the party.
