Chicken Blueberry Poppyseed Salad

Chicken and Nectarine Poppy Seed Salad


This chicken and nectarine poppy seed salad has grilled chicken, blueberries, nectarines, almonds, spinach, and homemade poppy seed dressing.


  • 2 large chicken breasts (plus salt, pepper, olive oil for seasoning)
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 2 ripe nectarines
  • 68 cups baby spinach
  • 1/4 cup chopped toasted almonds
  • homemade poppy seed dressing (or store-bought)


  1. Sprinkle the chicken with salt, pepper, olive oil, and any other seasonings you like. I happened to have a random raspberry chipotle seasoning blend in my cupboard, so I rubbed a little bit into the chicken breasts before grilling – it was SO good! Just use whatever seasonings you like and/or have on hand to give the chicken a little extra flavor.
  2. Grill the chicken – I used my panini press to get those really nice browned lines. It worked like a charm. Chop the chicken into bite sized pieces or strips.
  3. Assemble individual salads or toss all ingredients together in a large bowl. Top with poppy seed dressing.


Nutrition information includes dressing (about 3 tablespoons of the homemade stuff).
