Okay, this recipe is courtesy of my lovely sister's mother in law. Our families are close and spend many holiday's together, and when I first tasted this salad, I KNEW I had to get the recipe. She calls it a "Cornucopia Salad," and it is truly full of tasty goodies.
Bring the salad to Thanksgiving, serve it at a baby or bridal shower, or just make a wonderful meal for your family. It is a perfect autumn salad!
1/2 cup of candied nuts or a bag of honey coated almond slivers in the salad section
1/2 head of Romaine, torn
1/2 head of butter lettuce, torn
1 cup of chopped celery
4 chopped green onions
11 ounce can of mandarin orange slices
1 avocado cut into chunks
1 apple diced (Granny Smith are a great variety)
1/4 cup of craisins or other berry
1/2 cup of feta or blue cheese, crumbled
3 chicken breasts grilled and chopped or a double package of Tyson cooked chicken strips, cooked

1/2 tsp ground pepper
1/4 cup of veg. oil
