Grilled Chicken and Gorgonzola Salad

When the temperature rises, our suppers start including more cool yet filling main dishes. In other words, we start eating a lot more salads around here.

One of our favorites is this grilled chicken and Gorgonzola salad.

It’s so simple to make and comes together really quickly. I do want to tell you a few of tricks we’ve learned along the way on this salad though. I think you’ll like them.

Trick #1 – Take a bag of frozen chicken breasts and open the bag. Add in water and 1 teaspoon of salt. Close the bag and place the chicken in your refrigerator to thaw during the afternoon. When you get home, your chicken will have thawed and will be really moist and tender when cooked.

Trick #2 – To take this salad to a lunch, add a few more ingredients like sliced pears and toasted pecans. It kicks this salad up a notch and is quiet a delight on the tastebuds.

Trick #3 – IF you have any of this salad left over (which I seriously doubt, but just in case), throw it in a wrap for a yummy lunch or dinner the next day!

Here’s how I make it.

  4. I’d truly love this right now if you’d be so kind as to bring me a serving lol 🙂

  5. Love the tips, Robyn! Sounds like a delightful salad and the perfect warm weather lunch.

  6. The pears and nuts make this very much like my most favorite salad ever…which I first had at a Nordstrom’s Cafe. Their champagne vinaigrette is perfect too and I think the recipe can be located with a search online.
