Grilled Chicken Apple Gorgonzola Salad

Hi everyone! It’s Jenny from Honey and Birch and today I’m sharing a delicious and easy grilled chicken apple gorgonzola salad.

I’m in a salad mood once or twice a week and usually a traditional garden salad just doesn’t cut it. I want a lot of flavor but I also want a recipe that’s easy to make.

Enter this delicious salad.

how to make a yummy salad and homemade dressing

In the summer, I grill up some chicken breasts outside. In the winter, there is no way I’m taking the grill out of storage so I either cook the chicken using a grill pan or I use an indoor grill.

If I am feeling lazy (these things happen,) I have even substituted the grilled chicken for a grocery-store rotisserie chicken. There is no shame in saving time!

First, place some mixed greens in a bowl. I like to use mixed greens because I can get all the nutritional benefits of a bunch of different greens.

Next comes the chicken, the apples and the gorgonzola.

Top that with your favorite dressing. Or, make your own! I almost always add lemon vinaigrette dressing because it is easy to make and oh, so yummy.

And that’s it. Sounds so easy, right?

This is perfect for a quick lunch but can also be dinner. Or, you can serve it as a dinner side!

If you are looking for a sweeter salad, consider this option. You can add dried cranberries and walnuts for some sweetness and crunch!
