Blueberry Chicken Chopped Salad

When I make a salad for dinner, it really has to be somewhat hearty or my husband will wonder what's for dinner? This salad fills the bill as it has fruit, cheese and chicken.......and nuts!


  • 2 grilled chicken breasts, chopped
  • 1 tub of arugula 
  • 1 pint (2 cups) fresh blueberries
  • 1 cup roughly-chopped toasted pecans
  • 2/3 cup diced red onion
  • 1/2 cup blue cheese 
  • Dijon vinaigrette (see below)

Dijon Vinaigrette

  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • Pinch of salt and black pepper

To make the vinaigrette:

Whisk all ingredients together until combined.

Toss salad ingredients with dressing and serve. Add a piece of crusty french bread.
