Fruity Pecan & Feta Salad, 2 Ways

This was basically me trying to satisfy a craving for Panera's Fuji apple chicken salad and trying to make do with what I had on hand. It worked.
  • any kind of greens you like
  • red onion, sliced
  • pecans, chopped
  • feta cheese, crumbled
  • apple, chopped (and peeled, if you like)
  • dried cranberries
 Creamy Apple Dressing:
  • plain yogurt
  • apple juice concentrate
  • apple cider
  • apple cider vinegar
  • honey
 Toss salad ingredients together and mix dressing to taste. I used about 1/2 cup yogurt to about a tablespoon of everything else. Drizzle dressing over salad and serve immediately.

I keep a few cans of juice concentrate in the freezer specifically for recipes, and had bought some cider to use in my stuffing, so I used both. Merely suggestions though... feel free to experiment.

Second-day variation: Made this again, but added fresh ground pepper and Kosher salt to the dressing. Added shredded leftover chicken to the salad and crumbled some bacon over the top. Served with a grilled cheese made with sharp cheddar, bacon, and apple slices. Awesome.
