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. Source: Diabetic Living Magazine, Spring 2019

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Toss escarole (or romaine), sweet potato, chicken, and apple with vinaigrette; place on a 9-inch plate.

  • Top with avocado, sunflower seeds, and Cheddar.


Tip: To make a quick apple-cider vinaigrette, whisk 2 Tbsp. cider vinegar with 1/8 tsp. each salt and pepper. Slowly whisk in 1/4 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.
