Grilled Chicken, Chick Pea, and Feta Salad with Curry Dressing

Salad greens are one of the vegetables that do very well in the cooler fall weather. Whenever we have lots of salad greens we make this recipe for dinner; it is a favorite in our household. Serve with garlic bread and/or soup.
Salad greens-enough for how ever many people you are serving
Grilled chicken, sliced (figure a little less than 1 chicken breast per person, less for children, or leave out the chicken for a delicious vegetarian main dish)
1 can chickpeas, drained
Feta cheese, crumbled

Curry Dressing
3/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp granulated garlic
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
2 tsp curry powder

Add all ingredients to a large jar with a lid. Tighten lid and shake until all ingredients are blended together.

In a large salad bowl toss greens with enough dressing to coat the greens. Top greens with feta cheese, garbanzo beans, and grilled chicken. Cucumbers, sprouts, and tomatoes also go well with this salad. You can dress individual servings of salad in case all the salad doesn't get eaten. Dressing stores in the refrigerator for several months.
