I am so happy with this salad; I’ve made it for lunch three times this week. Crisp lettuce, red onions, ripe tomatoes, grilled chicken, pecans and apple slices have been the base of my favorite salad at Paradise Bakery for a couple years now.
I’m listing all the ingredients below and the amounts can be adjusted to your preferences.
For me, the best part of making this salad at home is that I can pile on the apple slices and go easy on the gorgonzola. You’ll want to have a jar of Honey Apple Vinaigrette on hand for easy salad making!
Fuji Apple Chicken Salad
- Green leaf lettuce chopped bite size
- Red onion sliced very thin
- Grape tomatoes halved
- Grilled chicken very thinly sliced
- Pecans halved or chopped to preference
- Dehydrated apple slices or a fresh fuji apple very thinly sliced
- Optional: gorgonzola cheese or other cheese of your preference
- Honey Apple Vinaigrette
- Place the above ingredients into a large bowl. Drizzle with vinaigrette right before serving. Toss well to coat thoroughly. Enjoy!

Yes I love this salad. I won't rest until I get one this weekend – or maybe I should make my own? I am very excited about the dressing – it all looks like a new favorite salad to me!
Healthy, crispy, tasty, fresh… this salad screams summer 🙂 Nice recipe!

Beautiful, and I'm going to go and study your dehydrated apples post—I just posted a granola with gorgeous dried fruit from the farmer's market and now I'm all excited about trying to do it for myself.
I love fun salads like this with all these fun mix ins. I would pile on both the apple and the Gorgonzola!

I'm not going to lie…this salad make me happy. 🙂
Pecans and apples go hand in hand (at least in my mind) This looks just delicious, my friend. Perfect for a fresh and flavorful summer meal.
This salad looks delicious but I can’t find the recipe for the honey apple vinaigrette – am I missing it somewhere? Thanks!
