Spin those salad wheels with this Basic + Awesome Chicken Quinoa Salad that’s easy to customize. Cherry tomatoes, shredded bits of artichoke, tender chicken, and fluffy quinoa all snuggled between pieces of fresh spinach. 


  • 2 cups cooked chicken, shredded or diced (I use pulled rotisserie chicken)
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa (I buy this pre-packaged, usually comes in 810 ounce packages)
  • 12 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • one 14-ounce can chopped artichokes, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup vinaigrette of choice (I used the Panera at Home Greek dressing)
  • a handful of spinach or other fresh greens of choice
  • salt, pepper, garlic powder to taste


  1. Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl until well-combined.
  2. Season to taste. YOU’RE DONE!
