From: Diabetic Living Magazine, Spring 2019

This easy salad recipe allows for a wonderful use of leftover cooked chicken. Look for escarole in the produce section near the leafy greens; if you can't find it, you can use romaine instead.

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Toss escarole (or romaine), sweet potato, chicken, and apple with vinaigrette; place on a 9-inch plate.
  2. Top with avocado, sunflower seeds, and Cheddar.
  • Tip: To make a quick apple-cider vinaigrette, whisk 2 Tbsp. cider vinegar with ⅛ tsp. each salt and pepper. Slowly whisk in ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil until blended. Extra dressing will keep, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Bring to room temperature before using.

The only change I made was in the dressing. I added 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise. The family all loved it. Will definitely make this again.
