Not-exactly-local Salad

It's winter, so none of these ingredients were locally grown. But I really wanted a salad!

Italian bagged salad mix
fresh strawberries
fresh orange
red onion
dried cranberries
feta cheese
Honey-Dijon vinaigrette

Place salad mix in a large bowl.

Wash and dry all fresh produce. Peel orange, and either section or cut into bite-sized pieces. Halve or quarter strawberries. Seed pomegranate. Thinly slice onion. Add all too the salad mix, and add feta, cranberries, and chicken. Toss with vinaigrette.

My note: Use any chicken you like...grilled, rotisserie, etc. All I had tonight was breaded chicken patties, so I cooked as per directions on package, and then cut them into bite-sized pieces to add to salad. Mushrooms and pecans would be great in this too.

Here is a priceless tutorial on how to 'open' a pomegranate tidily!
