Chicken Acai Salad

I had a cookie exchange to celebrate Christmas and baking with my favorite girlies. I decided I was tired of dinner parties–too fancy. I wanted a lighthearted affair. So I decided to have a luncheon. (Luncheon is such a pleasant sounding event.) For this fun filled luncheon, I voted on healthy foods since we were about to eat a gazillion cookies. I love salads, but I usually am not very good at making them. I found a delicious one in my Cooking Light cookbook that I have to share. It’s fairly simple, and the dressing is amazing! I omitted the red onions and added in some feta cheese. Delightful!

Salad Ingredients:

8 cups mixed greens

2 cups chopped, cooked chicken breast

1/2 cup red onion slices

1/4 cup pecans

Dressing Ingredients:

1/2 c acai juice blend (such as Sambazon)

3 T sugar

1-1/2 T grated orange rind

3 T rice vinegar

1 -1/2 T canola oil

1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
