Chicken, Bacon, and Tomato Salad


Chicken SaladThis salad recipe was inspired by the perennially favorite club sandwich. It boasts chicken, bacon, tomato, and mozzarella on a bed of spinach greens and is then topped with a creamy vinaigrette.

The dressing can be made with either yogurt or mayonnaise—whichever you prefer. It’s made with equal parts lime juice and honey with just a bit of prepared mustard.

For the Salad

1/2 pound bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 1/2 cups sliced, cooked chicken meat
2 medium tomatoes, sliced
1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese
spinach greens

For the Dressing

1/2 cup plain yogurt or mayonnaise
1/4 cup lime juice
1/4 cup honey
1 dash salt
1/2 tablespoon prepared mustard

Directions

1. Fry the bacon until it is crisp. Crumble it into bits or cut it up with kitchen shears.
2. While the bacon is cooking, mix the dressing ingredients together. Whisk until smooth.
3. Arrange the chicken, tomatoes, cheese, and spinach greens on a plate. Serve with dressing on the side.
