Crispy Bacon, Chicken and Apple Salad

on

I am back at it with the wonderful flavors of bacon and chicken.  This time I combined my favorite chicken from Trader Joe’s with some crispy bacon bits and sliced apples.  Doesn’t that make your mouth water?

The pairing of the apples with feta cheese and bits of bacon are an amazing combination of flavors, so be prepared to  let your tastebuds savor all these great flavors.

Make sure you slice the apple right before you are ready to serve the salad to prevent the apple from turning brown.
