As the weather warms, we tend to lighten our dinners, and enjoy cooler entrées. This is one of my favorite simple dinner salads. A bonus is that the salad minus the chicken is a great side salad with meatloaf, pasta, or pork.
2 Rotisserie chickens
1 head of Romaine, chopped
Small bag of mixed European greens
3/4 cup of jumbo raisins or Craisins
1/4 cup pine nuts or 1/3 cup peanuts
1/2 cup Crumbled Blue Cheese
