Recipe: Broccoli and Apple Salad with Herb Baked Chicken

I may be in the minority, but I am a salad lover. They’re easy, healthy, and versatile, so it’s my goal to make you all salad lovers too. With less produce in season, it can be difficult to make a salad your staple in the coldest months. Using broccoli and apples topped with delicious baked chicken, I think this recipe makes a pretty good case.
