Why I Love This Recipe

I first had this salad at a church potluck, and it had so many items in it, I realized as I was picking out the stuff I didn't like, that I could, on my own, add in the things I liked, and that the dressing is so versatile it goes with almost anything!

1/2 head green leaf lettuce, torn into bite size pieces
1/2 head romaine lettuce, torn into bite size pieces

1 ripe avocado, diced
1 fuji apple, diced
1 persimmon - the flat crunchy kind - peeled and diced

1/2 c crumbled bleu cheese
3 diced chicken breasts, stir fried with garlic salt and lemon pepper
