|Walnut Chicken Salad with Fresh Parmesan Cheese...just like Paradise Bakery...only with a little bit added....|
Have you ever had the Chicken Walnut Salad at Paradise Bakery and Cafe? I love that place. They give you a cookie with each order. I like a little sweet with my salad or soup, ya know?
|The Snickerdoodles are my favorite cookie at Paradise Bakery....|
|Yummy place for salads and a quick lunch....|
I've actually gone there twice in one week once, just to eat their soups and salads. My favorite is the Chicken Walnut. And I can't pick a favorite soup. They are all really good there.
|The Asian Salad is pretty good at Paradise Bakery too....but....the Chicken Walnut is the best.|
The only thing is....they DON'T put enough walnuts in the salad. No way. I always go up and ask, "Did you forget my walnuts?" And they ALWAYS tell me "NO". I just like a lot of crunch in a salad.
Our famous Chicken Walnut salad on top of romaine lettuce tossed with Caesar dressing, garlic croutons & parmesan cheese.
|Use up lots of your fresh veggies....I added some purple onion to my hubs...he's an onion lover!|
I just got some fresh shredded Parmesan cheese from the deli...
|I like sweet, red peppers in mine. We both love cucumbers too...and the Walnuts of course...|
So here are the INGREDIENTS for 2 salads
Romaine lettuce cut into bits
1 tomato cut into wedges and then halved
1/2 cucumber cut into spears and then chunked
2 Tablespoons Parmesan cheese (or more to your taste)
1 grilled chicken breast cooled and cut into chunks
1 Tablespoon for each salad of Caesar dressing.
1/4 cup walnuts (or more if you like)
|Add some black pepper to it right after tossing....|
Cut up all the veggies and lettuce and place into 2 salad bowls. Add the fresh Parmesan, the chicken and the walnuts. Add Caesar dressing and croutons and shake on some black pepper. Enjoy!
|Yum...this is sooooo tasty and yummy!|
