Chicken Salad with Cranberries, Toasted Almonds and Orange Vinaigrette
There’s some good news and some bad news on the salad eating front. The bad news is that a full third of Americans don’t eat salad. The good news is that those among us whoe do eat salads enjoy a 40% higher vegetable intake- and with it all the nutrient benefits that leafy greens bring.
The recommended daily serving for vegetables is generally 3 cups of raw veggies. Tossing up a salad just a few more times each week can dramatically increase your vegetable intake. Choose Dole Very Veggie All Natural Salad Blend and you’ll enjoy crispy icberg and romaine lettuce plus sweet carrots, colorful cabbage, crunchy snow peas and zesty radishes. Who knew eating right could taste so good?
Add the lean protein of chicken, sweet-tart dried cranberries, power-packed almonds and a flavorful orange vinaigrette and you’ll have a main dish salad that gives you all the inspiration you need to eat more veggies! (The orange vinaigrette is great with fish and seafood, too)
