Blue Chicken Avocado Salad

Blue Chicken Avocado Salad ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #salad #recipe

Sometimes I come home from work and my daughter has made chicken but she hasn’t eaten it all. Yesterday was one of those days. I came home and there were two whole chicken tenders sitting on a plate on the table that she hadn’t touched. This always makes me think “salad”. This may sound really odd, but I’m not much of a chicken nugget/chicken tender eater unless there are vegetables involved, preferably lots of greens and a good dressing. I’m weird, I know.

So I took one of those tenders, rummaged around in the fridge to find some yummies to go with it and made a very satisfying and pretty salad.

Blue Chicken Avocado Salad


  • Chopped chicken (breaded, baked or grilled ... leftover chicken is perfect for this), warmed & chopped
  • Fresh mixed greens
  • Blue cheese crumbles
  • Slices of ripe avocado
  • Sweet, ripe cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Homemade Blue cheese dressing (recipe here) ... or ranch, whatever you prefer


  1. Heat or cook the chicken, then chop. For my personal salad, I used 1 chicken tender.
  2. Fill your salad plate or bowl mostly with greens. Add blue cheese crumbles, avocado, & cherry tomatoes.
  3. Drizzle with dressing and enjoy!


For a gluten free salad, make sure to use gluten free chicken.
