City Creek Salad

 I went out of town for Spring Break.  We went to visit family in Utah. While we were in Salt Lake City,  I checked out a new shopping area called City Creek and it was magnificent!  It had H&M, Tiffany, Nordstrom, Michael Kors and lots, lots more.  It was a beautiful shopping center.  I also discovered the "food court."  It was there that I tasted a fantastic salad.  I tried my best to re-create it.
     Raw almonds; I weighed them so I could easily count the calories.
 Measure out 1/4 cup white beans, drained and rinsed, 5 dried apricots chopped, and 4 Tbs Monterey Jack cheese; cubed.  Place over a 6 oz  bed of mixed greens.  Top with 3 oz grilled boneless, skinless chicken breast if desired.  I seasoned mine with Lowry's Season Salt.
Since I was making an individual salad, I used 1 Tbs. vinaigrette.
 I love Briannas but any raspberry vinaigrette or homemade vinaigrette would be delicious too.
 Combine all of the ingredients.
Toss salad to mix.  I love the crunch of the almonds and the sweet, chewy dried apricots.  Thanks City Creek for the inspiration.  

P.S.  this salad has a total of 586 calories.  It is a very generous main dish.  Enjoy!
