We are experiencing that strange but lovely second summer; the wave of heat that hits after the first week of 50 degree weather. I’ve been wearing boots and sweaters but today required a dress and sandals.
I wanted something filling for dinner but cold; enter this marvelously delicious Blue Cheese Chicken BLT Salad. The tomatoes are from my parents garden and are the most delicious I have ever had. Add wonderfully strong bleu cheese and crunchy greens, salty bacon and perfectly cooked and easy to grab rotisserie chicken and you have yourself a winner.
1/2 cup shredded romaine lettuce
1/2 cup shredded green cabbage
1/2 cup shredded red cabbage
1/3 cup shredded carrots
1/4 cup sliced scallions
1 yellow heirloom tomato, diced
1 cup rotisserie chicken, diced
1/4 cup bleu cheese crumbles
1/4 cup bleu cheese dressing
wonton strips and bacon crumbles, to taste
Toss together the lettuce, cabbages, carrots, scallions, tomatoes, chicken, cheese and dressing. Let rest in the fridge for 30 minutes. Serve with wonton strips and bacon crumbles. Enjoy!
