"Chicken" Salad

I don't know about you, but I feel like all I've done the past few days is drink wine, hang with family, and eat, eat, eat. I feel the need to eat a little lighter today, or at least make an effort to keep the pastries to a minimum. Nope no pastries today, I need a good couple weeks of healthy eating to get me back on track.

This salad was thrown together with whatever I could find in the fridge, and I must say, the result was not too shabby!

Serves 1

1/2 head romaine lettuce
2 tbs light raspberry vinaigrette (or whatever you have on hand)
1-2 tbs dried cranberries (depending on your taste)
1/2 large/medium carrot, chopped
MorningStar Farms "Chik'N Strips" (1 portion)
salt, pepper.

Cook the chick'n strips until slightly brown and heated thoroughly. Season with salt and pepper.

Rinse and dry the lettuce, chop, and place in a mixing bowl. Add to the lettuce the cranberries, chopped carrot, and the vinaigrette. Toss and serve with the chick'n.

Variations could be to add croutons and slivered almonds, but today I wanted to keep it light.
