Total Time

This looks great. Found on a recipe card at the market. I'm posting the exact recipe but I'd use a little more cheese I think.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 (5 -6 ounce) chicken breasts
  • 4 cups Baby Spinach
  • 1 large apple (Braeburn preferred, halved, cored and sliced thinly)
  • 1 cup pecans, toasted (walnuts ok too)
  • 12 cup light vinaigrette (your favorite)
  • 2 ounces Stilton cheese, crumbled
  • additional vinaigrette (optional)


  1. Coat a lg grill pan with a non stick cooking spray. Place over med heat. Add chicken and cook 5-6 mins per side or until it reaches 165 degrees inside. Remove from heat, slice into strips and set aside.
  2. In a lg bowl combine spinach, apple slices, nuts and vinaigrette, toss to coat. Place salad on 4 plates, season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Top each salad evenly with sliced chicken and 1 Tbsp of the crumbled cheese. Drizzle with more dressing if you wish and serve at once.

Yum! I used a shredded deli chicken, a red Delicious apple, and glazed pecans for this great salad. Light and refreshing. Thanks Annacia for sharing. Made for ZWT 8 - Great Britain.

I used leftover chicken so this was a breeze to assemble for a quick lunch. I love good bleu cheeses so the stilton was a hit here. I used pecans, a gala apple, and fat free vinaigrette. Yum! Thank you for sharing the recipe!

Awesome salad! We had this for a perfect light dinner on a hot day. So flavourful! I made it with stilton for DH and used a similar blue sheep's cheese for myself. Good keeper for the next summer ;-) Thanks for sharing!
