It’s been a while since my last salad post so I had to make another. And this one is so simple to make. If you have leftover chicken, this is a great recipe to use it in. To make this deliciousness, you’ll need mixed greens, red cabbage, avocado, blueberries, and cooked chicken. The dressing is coming here in a moment.

In a medium to large bowl mix together greens, diced avocado, blueberries and chicken. You can easily make chicken to add to the salad if you don’t already have some cooked. Take a half to 1 pound of chicken and tenderize it using a meat tenderizing tool. If it’s a thicker piece of chicken, be sure to thinly slice it so it cooks faster. Then season it with italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Sear it in a pan until fully cooked and allow to cool. Shred and add into salad.

Boom! A healthy, yummy salad perfect for any day of the week!

Now for the dressing. I’m personally not a huge fan of salad dressing but this one goes so well with the salad. And my husband and I love it! It’s a simple vinaigrette.

Made with white vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, dijon mustard, dried oregano, salt and pepper. No need for a blender. Put into a small mason jar with a lid and shake until combined. Then pour desired amount onto your salad. Literally so good.

So enjoy this Mixed Greens Avocado Blueberry Chicken Salad and feel good eating it! Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
