Cranberry Apple Salad with Grilled Chicken

Cranberry Apple Salad with Grilled Chicken

Just last week, I had some leftover chicken from dinner I prepared the night before but was left with no sides to enjoy at lunch the next day. Instead of grabbing something quick from the snack drawer at the office, I decided to follow in my best friend’s footsteps and make a salad (which I never do, btw). She makes salads quite often so she gave me a bit of salad inspiration and the recipe for her grandmother’s vinaigrette! If you’re wondering what you should do with a little leftover chicken, this salad is the perfect recipe for you. The best part is, it only takes about five minutes to put together!
