Description

This delicious meal-sized salad is inspired by Panera’s Fuji apple salad with fresh apple slices, gorgonzola, tomatoes, pepitas and a white balsamic vinaigrette.


Ingredients

  • 6 cups spring mix, romaine and/or baby spinach (a blend is nice)
  • 1 large Fuji or Honeycrisp apple, sliced or chopped
  • 2 (4-6 oz) grilled chicken breasts, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup crumbled gorgonzola cheese
  • 1/4 cup red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup cherry tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/4 cup pepitas or toasted pecans
  • white balsamic vinaigrette, to taste

Instructions

  1. Grill chicken breasts if you haven’t already. See notes above for how to grill the chicken. This step can be done up to 2 days in advance. Just keep grilled chicken breasts in the fridge until ready to prep the salad.
  2. Divide greens among two individual plates and top with remaining ingredients. Add dressing to taste and enjoy.
