Honeyed Apple and Chicken Salad


This is a main dish salad, a salad with chicken and cheese.  Chicken and cheese can turn many side salads into main dish salads.  This is a very good salad.

1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/2 cup mild cheese such as mozzarella or provolone cut into small cubes

salad greens

For the dressing

1/2 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon prepared Dijon mustard
1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon chopped parsley

  2. Toss the apple pieces, almonds, cheese cubes, celery slices, and chicken pieces together.  Mix in the salad dressing.  Serve on salad greens.
