A fresh, fragrant and healthy salad that is prepared with slices of chicken, creamy avocado, baby spinach, pomegranate seeds, apples, as well as Gorgonzola cheese and roasted walnuts, all tossed in a light and simple dressing of olive oil and apple cider vinegar. This recipe is great for using up leftover chicken from a steak or grill. You can serve it with Greek yogurt, which is the perfect accompaniment.
I recommend this seasonal salad recipe that is simple and quick to make, rich in nutrients, and packed with flavors and healthy fats.
