Mandarin Chicken, Berry Pineapple Salad With Poppy Seed Dressing

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by PanNan

This is my take on the wonderful salad served at Panera Bread this spring. It's not a copycat. I just made it similar. Great for a spring/summer light meal. This recipe represents the light healthy cooking style typical of the Western U.S. region.

This is very good! Very light and refreshing. I liked the Poppy seed dressing on it but next time I think I'll try Raspberry Walnut Vinagrette. Thanks :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rub the chicken breast half with olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Let rest while grill heats. Grill for a few minutes on a contact, stove-top or outdoor grill until cooked through. Let rest 10 minutes, and slice on the diagonal into thin slices.
  2. Meanwhile prepare salad. Place romaine in a medium size bowl. Top with strawberries, blueberries, mandarin oranges, pineapple and pecans.
  3. Place sliced chicken on top of salad, coat with poppy seed dressing, and serve with a chunk of French baguette.
