THE Salad.

This isn't my salad, but it's a picture that closely resembles it. 

I have fallen head over heels with Cranberry Chicken Salad and I'm not ashamed to admit it.

It started with Deidre's in Spicer.  Then it became something I made at home.  Now, it's bordering on obsession.  Here's how I make it --

Romanie Lettuce
Cooked chicken breast
Gorgonzola Cheese
Chopped pecans (or walnuts)
Dried cranberries (Craisins)
Poppyseed dressing of your choice

Now, I have to say, no one was surprised more than me about the deliciousness of gorgonzola cheese.  But the combination of the cheese and the tart Craisins....just trust me that it is amazing.

As far as the dressing, I choose Kraft Poppyseed, but I'm sure others are delightful.  One must be careful with the dressing and the Craisins as both are loaded with sugar, which negates the point of a salad, right? 

Whatever.  It's good stuff.  Go make it, silly.

there is something about the mix of cheese and craisins. I make a cucumber/tomato/bacon (real!)/craisin/tomato basil feta cheese salad that Will LOVES. And he "hates" cucumbers and tomatos. And craisins.

But the combo is somehow dynamite. :)
