Apricot Pistachio Chicken Salad

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast
  • Salt pepper, garlic powder (for seasoning the chicken)
  • 2 packages Dole Organic Kale Mix
  • 4 ripe apricots pitted and sliced into wedges
  • 1 avocado pitted and sliced
  • cup shelled pistachios
  • ½ small white onion very thinly sliced (optional)

Honey Dijon Vinaigrette:

  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 ½ teaspoons dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Pinch salt
  • Pinch black pepper


  • Season the chicken breasts all over with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
  • Preheat your gas grill. Set the flames to medium, add the chicken breasts, and grill, covered, until cooked through (~170 degrees F internally), about 15 minutes, flipping them halfway. Transfer them to a cutting board and slice or chop into bite-size pieces.
  • In a small bowl, make the vinaigrette. Whisk the cider vinegar, honey, dijon mustard, olive oil, salt, and pepper until combined.
  • In a large bowl, toss the kale with the apricots, avocado, pistachios, white onion, and the vinaigrette. Divide among 4 plates or bowls and top evenly with grilled chicken.
