2 large salads


  • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt

  • 4 cups salad greens

  • 1 Granny Smith apple, cored and sliced

  • ½ cup candied walnuts

  • ¼ cup crumbled blue cheese

  • ¼ cup raspberry vinaigrette, or to taste


  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  2. Season chicken with seasoned salt and grill until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 5 to 7 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

  3. Mix salad greens, apple slices, walnuts, and blue cheese together in a bowl. Drizzle raspberry vinaigrette over the salad and toss to coat; divide salad between 2 plates.

  4. Cut chicken into strips and place half the strips atop each salad portion.
