My Girlfriend Meredith, you know the one...(refresh your memory HERE) had some ladies over for lunch the other day! She thought we needed a "Back to school, welcome to getting on top of the housework, have fun trying to help your middle schooler with that math, what do I pack for my kids lunch day after day" lunch. Wasn't that nice of her? When we got there, she had a beautiful table set and the salad was fantastic! She calls it her "Paul Newman Chicken Salad".
Paul Newman Salad
1 bag assorted greens 4 boneless chicken breasts 1 pkg slivered almonds 1 med. Onion chopped 1/2 pkg fresh mushrooms, sliced 1 box of Uncle Ben’s Long Grain & Wild Rice 1 bottle of Paul Newman's Olive Oil salad dressing

Mix chicken, rice, ¾ of almond pkg, onion, mushrooms and ½ bottle of salad dressing together. Chill. Spoon mixture over greens and top with remainder of almonds. Serve remaining dressing on the side to taste.
