Directions

  • Place the chicken breasts and Italian dressing into a resealable plastic bag. Mix together to coat the chicken with the dressing, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil grate.

  • Remove the chicken from the marinade, and shake off excess. Discard the remaining marinade. Grill the chicken breasts until no longer pink in the center, or to an internal temperature of 165 degrees F (74 degrees C), about 3 minutes per side. Set aside to cool while preparing the ingredients for salad, then dice.

  • Toss the diced apple with the lemon juice in a large mixing bowl until well coated; drain and discard any excess lemon juice. Place the lettuce into the mixing bowl, then sprinkle with the diced chicken, avocado, feta cheese, strawberries, and cranberries. Gently toss the salad with the balsamic vinaigrette, and serve immediately.

When I submitted this recipe it was intended that the dressing be served on the side and put on the salad to one's liking. If the balsamic is too strong I have also served it with an olive oil vinaigrette or a raspberry vinaigrette. Read More

This salad was very quick to put together and the tastes went together very nicely. My very healthy-eating sis was impressed and my meat-loving hubby put dibs on the leftovers!! Thanks! Read More

Have you ever been craving something but you weren't sure what? This salad will probably satisfy it. It is sweet creamy and salty all at the same time. I couldn't find strawberries at the store (during strawberry season no less!) so I subbed blackberries. I also used a spring mix (it was on sale) for the lettuce and added some sunflower seeds for some crunch (personal preference not necessary). The chicken came out perfectly charred and juicy and complimented the other flavors of the salad well. What a lovely combination! Thanks Amy! Read More

Very nice combination of flavors. I followed the recipe exactly but next time I'll cut back on the vinaigrette. It was a bit much. Read More

This salad was amazing! My husband is not usually a fan of vinaigrette dressings but he even raved about this salad! We live in an area where fresh berries of all kinds are plentiful from spring to early fall so we will be making this a lot! Thanks so much for the idea! The flavors of all the ingredients combined perfectly! Read More

AMAZING salad!! I didn't have italian dressing so I just grilled the chicken with garlic powder. I loved it and so did everyone else in our family... and they're "ranch dressing" people. Thanks so much! Read More
