Chicory is a bitter green typically served cooked in butter or sautéed, but for my spin on this classic southern ingredient, I found inspiration from the bitter green salads so popular in LA.  Dandelion greens, arugula, frisée, radicchio, or any other green with a bite are wonderful contrasts to sweet bacon, pungent blue cheese, and toasted walnuts in this salad.  Paired with rich and savory southern style cooking, this bright salad balances out the meal.
1 lb chicory greens, arugula, frisée, or radicchio (any bitter greens)
4 oz bacon, diced
2 oz blue cheese
1/4 cup walnut halves
1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
3 tablespoons olive oil

Salt and Pepper to taste
In a pan over medium heat, cook the bacon until just crisp.  Mix together the vinaigrette and combine with the bacon and chicory.  Sprinkle in the cheese and walnuts.

2 green onions, sliced (about 3 T.)

1 (20 oz.) can pineapple tidbits, drained
2 T. lemon juice
Combine chicken, celery, green onion, green pepper, salt, black pepper, and mayonnaise in a bowl; mix well. Stir in pecans, pineapple, and lemon juice.  Chill for about 30 minutes before serving.
