1. Salt & Pepper, and bake or grill 3-4 Chicken Breasts (400° for approximately 20 minutes).
2. Mix 2 T. (1/2 packet) Spitfire Gourmet Sweet & Tangy into 3 tablespoons Olive Oil and 3 tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar.
3. Toss with 16 oz. Lettuces, chopped Scallions (use some green parts, too), diced Avocado, cooked crumbled Bacon, and crumbled Feta Cheese. Add 1 cup smashed Cranberries (not crushed, but just opened to release some flavor) and 1/2 cup Candied Walnuts or Pecans. GOURMET TIP: Darker lettuces contain more nutrients than lighter iceberg lettuce, so reach for Romaine, leaf and other lettuces.
4. Top with sliced Chicken and serve.
