This salad is a knock-off of Panera's salad. It's loaded with pecans, blue cheese, red onion, and delicious apple chips.
2boneless,skinless chicken breasts
salt and pepper
1(10-ounce)package mixed greens
2medium tomatoes,cut into thin wedges
1/4of an onion thinly sliced
3/4cuptoasted pecan halves
1/2cupgorgonzola cheese crumbles
2tablespoonsapple juice concentrate
1tablespoonwhite balsamic vinegar
1/4teaspoonfreshly ground black pepper
1/4cupCanola oil or Olive oil
Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat.
Combine olive oil and lemon juice and rub mixture into chicken breasts. Season with salt and pepper.
Cook chicken for 3-4 minutes per side or until no longer pink in the middle. Let cool and then slice.
In a salad bowl combine mixed greens, tomatoes, red onion, cheese, and pecans. Top with chicken and sprinkle apple chips on top.
To make dressing, whisk together all ingredients in a medium bowl.
You can use packaged dehydrated apple slices for the apple chips or just use thinly sliced fresh apples. To take some of the bite out of red onion, place the sliced onion in a bowl of ice water for at least 10 minutes. Works like a charm!
