Recipe/Workout Wednesday

On hot days, I love to serve a cool salad for dinner. This is a salad we get at a local restaurant; they use blue cheese, but I prefer feta.

Summer Chicken Salad
Serves 4
4-6 cups Lettuce Mix (I like romaine and arugula)
2 - 6 oz. Chicken breast, cooked, and chopped
½ medium Granny Smith apple (with skin) chopped
½ cup cucumber (with peel)
½ cup chopped tomato
2 tablespoon chopped walnuts
¼ cup Feta Cheese
4 tablespoons olive oil vinaigrette

Place lettuce in salad bowls. Layer with other ingredients, toss with vinaigrette.

Amount Per Serving

Nutritional info from Sparkpeople recipe counter and are approximates.
Please note that the majority of the fat are from heart healthy good fats.

For something different, try doing this as a timed workout. Perform each exercise for 60 seconds with 5 seconds rest in between.

60 on/5 off is a BRUTAL interval! But I'll try it. :)

60 on, 5 off?? I'll be swearing like a sailor 1/2 through, but I'll love every second! LOL

I make this salad all the time. It is one of my favorites. The Wednesday Warrior looks pretty tough. Im nursing a cold. Otherwise I would give it a shot.

That sounds great. Can I ask how much in a serving? 1 cup? 2? I never know when recipes say "x calories per serving" how big they mean.
