I briefly worked for a company based in New York City and on my first visit there, my coworkers introduced me to what became my go-to for chopped salads on every visit. I had never had a chopped salad before and I was hooked!

I no longer work for that company but I still dream about those chopped salads.  This one features our absolute favorite dressing to make at home, combining our Green Apple White Balsamic and our top-selling Garlic Chili EVOO.   We also happen to love this combo of ingredients but this salad is super flexible so change it up anyway you want!

The quantities of the below ingredients are personal preference for how we like our ingredients proportioned so feel free to measure those with your heart!

Chopped Green Apple Chicken Salad
35 minutes total (25 minutes cook • 10 minutes prep)
  • 2 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
  • 6 cups spring mix/romaine lettuce/greens of choice
  • 1 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/2 cup crumbled bacon
  • 1/2 cup craisins
  • 1/2 cup sweet & spicy pecans (or plain toasted pecans)
  • 1 green apple, chopped
  • 2/3 cup Green Apple White Balsamic Vinegar
  • 2/3 cup Garlic Chili EVOO
  • 2 teaspoons dijon mustard
  • pinch of salt/ground black pepper

Heat a grill or skillet to medium heat.  Drizzle chicken breasts with olive oil and sprinkle with salt/pepper.  Cook until chicken reaches 165F - let rest for a few minutes before cutting.

In a mason jar, combine Green Apple White Balsamic, Garlic Chili EVOO, dijon mustard, salt and pepper.  Shake vigorously to mix.

In a large bowl, combine chicken, lettuce, bacon, blue cheese, pecans, craisins and green apple.  If you have a dough scraper, this works well to chop the salad in the bowl.  If not, place all ingredients on a large cutting board and chop together and place in a large bowl.

Add about ¼ cup of dressing to the salad and toss together - keep adding dressing until the salad is dressed to your liking!  (We think the dressing is the best part of the salad so we tend to go a bit heavier).

If you plan to meal prep this, only add the dressing to the salad you plan to eat that day.  Otherwise, it can soften all the ingredients as it continues to sit.


Don't feel like cooking chicken?  No problem!  We've also done with salad using rotisserie chicken from the grocery store - a nice hack for a quicker dinner!
