Grilled Chicken Salad with Roasted Peppers, Avocado and Blue Cheese


This grilled chicken salad is a regular go-to weekday lunch for me. I always keep avocados and mixed greens in my fridge and thanks to the nature of my job I’ve usually got grilled chicken around, too. If I don’t have roasted red peppers handy, I slice up some raw red peppers. They add a nice crunch to the salad when they’re raw, but I love, love, love the flavor of roasted peppers. On this day, I had blue cheese crumbles in the fridge but goat cheese, fresh mozzarella or parmesan would be just as delicious. I would love to tell you I made my own, homemade, super fresh salad dressing to go with this but that would be a lie. I didn’t. I rarely do. I know, I know….fresh tastes so much better, it’s easy to make, there’s so much processed junk in the bottled dressings, blah, blah, blah. I hear ya’, but I live in the real world and things like fresh salad dressing don’t happen very often at my house. For this I use a bottled creamy balsamic and it was great. I try to always measure out my salad dressing so I don’t accidentally eat a day’s worth of calories in one salad. Enjoy!
