Grilled Chicken & Granola Salad
“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” ~Leonardo da Vinci
Who needs an easy dish idea to bring to a party this holiday weekend? 🙋♀️ Well here is the perfect, super simple, classic salad that everyone will love! This salad, with only 6 ingredients, is a snap to prep ahead of time (just mix it all together right before serving) or you can stop at the store on the way to your party and pick up everything you need and throw it together in under 5 minutes.
Here are the ingredients:
Clamshell of spinach/arugula mix (my preference)
Grilled chicken (chopped)
Thinly sliced red onion
Granola (original @purely_elizabeth is my fave, slightly sweet/salty 👌)
Poppyseed dressing (I use @tessemaesbecause I love everything they make)
Optional: goat cheese, feta or gorgonzola crumbles would be a good addition to this salad
Mix it all up in whatever proportions you like just before serving.
Want to simplify even more? Utilize the salad bar at your grocery store...mine usually has chopped chicken, sliced onions and cut strawberries. Rotisserie chicken is also an option, just cut the breasts off in large pieces and chop. Easy, fast! Everyone loves this salad!
