This Grapefruit, Kale, Chicken and Avocado Power Salad is filling, healthy and flavorful! The Champagne Vinaigrette complements all the flavors and pulls it all together.
I’ve been eating this Grapefruit, Kale, Chicken and Avocado Power Salad everyday for over a week, so I figured if I love it so much, I should share it with you! It’s filling and flavorful!
It’s packed full of healthy fats from the avocado, walnuts and olive oil; a simple grilled rosemary chicken provides even more protein to power you through the day; baby spinach and kale, which have too many health benefits to fit here (if you want to read more about the power of kale, you can here); and a tiny sprinkling of goat’s milk feta, because EVERYTHING is better with cheese.
The Champagne Vinaigrette perfectly ties all the flavors together but doesn’t overpower them – just as an excellent salad dressing should be. I am obsessed with this dressing. It is also an excellent sauce in which to bake fish!
I first used it as a dressing for a simple salad to go with my baked Halibut and I just can’t get enough!
This Power Salad makes an easy yet filling lunch or dinner! It would also be a beautiful appetizer for company (scaled down, of course).
Grapefruit, Kale, Chicken and Avocado Power Salad with Champagne Vinaigrette
- 1 cup baby kale
- 1 cup baby spinach
- ½ pink grapefruit
- ½ avocado (sliced)
- ½ chicken breast (or leftover roasted chicken)
- ½ oz feta cheese
- 4 Walnuts
Champagne Vinaigrette [Instructions here]
- Make your chicken breasts by your preferred method. I grilled these in a grill pan on my stovetop, but you can also pan sear them and then cook on the stove or in a preheated 400 ° oven or grill them in a real grill. Let rest 10 minutes prior to slicing.
- While the chicken cooks build your salad. I like to remove everything except the juicy insides of the grapefruit – it takes a bit longer but then there is no bitterness to offset their amazing flavor!
- Arrange all topping on your bed of spinach and kale, drizzle a bit of your salad dress on top. Enjoy!
