    This grilled chicken arugula salad is full of amazing, fresh flavor! And it’s easy to make, delicious and healthy! The green and red grapes add a nice sweetness to this chicken salad combined with the honey balsamic vinaigrette. And I added some chopped walnuts for a little crunch.

    I love the fact that this grilled chicken arugula salad takes literally about 10 – 15 minutes to make and it’s perfect for lunch, or dinner on a busy weeknight. The ingredients are simple, and no prep work is required (except for the grilled chicken). Sometimes on weekends, I would grill a batch of chicken breasts seasoned with salt and pepper and store them in a ziplock bag in the refrigerator. I then use them during the week for quick recipes like this one. So convenient, and it makes eating healthy so much easier and stress-free.

    Hope you enjoy this grilled chicken arugula salad! Let me know what you think if you try it. 🙂

    Oh my goodness this looks delicious! I LOVE salads that are a mix of savory and sweet. I’d probably top it with some goat cheese, too, because I’m obsessed. 😉

      Oh yes, topped with goat/feta cheese sounds great!

    Anything with arugula in it is a winner to me.

    I LOVE the look of this recipe and am so excited to try it. The only thing I might omit are the red onions because I don’t tend to like onion in my salad, but otherwise I couldn’t be more excited. Thanks so much for sharing!
