Grape Arugula Chicken Salad

Ya know, I haven’t had grapes is a very long time (aside from the kind that are made into a liquid and make me giggle…ahem – wine), and after making this salad, I’m seriously questioning why that is! Wow, those round little buggers are delicious, and they make for the perfect addition to this salad! Not only that, but they are packed with all kinds of nutrition!

Health Benefits of Grapes

  • Boosts the immune system
  • Prevents fatigue
  • Helps to alleviate symptoms of a migraine
  • Helps maintain lower cholesterol levels
  • Lowers the risk of kidney disease
  • Improves brain function

Look at all those goodies!  And all in a tiny lil grape!  Okay, back to this salad.

This salad is so good, and it’s really simple, since it just involves putting all the ingredients on a plate, mixing, and eating.  Um, dinner doesn’t get much easier than that!


Ingredients (makes 2 servings):

  • 5-6 cups baby arugula
  • 1 large chicken breast, grilled or baked and cut into bite size pieces
  • 3-4 Tbsp. chopped red onion
  • 1/2 ripe avocado, chopped
  • 2 ounces crumbled soft goat cheese
  • a whole bunch of red grapes (it’s up to you how much to put in there!), chopped in half
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
  • olive oil, for drizzling
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • sea salt


Add the arugula, chicken, grapes, red onion, cheese, avocado, and walnuts to a plate.

Toss the ingredients together, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with lemon juice, and season with sea salt.

YUMMERS!  Enjoy! 🙂
