I made grilled lemon chicken a few days ago, and it was so flavorful and bright that I made it again… but as Lemon Chicken and Blueberry Salad.

A nice, fresh chicken salad with a homemade lemon dressing (that also doubles as the chicken marinade) is just perfect for the soon arrival of spring 🙂

Light and healthy, but for sure not lacking in the flavor department.

This would be great as a lunch, dinner, or you could even meal prep a few to enjoy throughout the week.

How to Make Lemon Chicken and Blueberry Salad

First up is making the dressing.

Put 1/2 cup olive oil, 1/4 cup lemon juice, a Tablespoon ginger paste, dijon mustard, and honey in a jar with a lid.

Season with kosher salt, pepper and shake until it’s evenly combined.

Then place two chicken breasts in a gallon size plastic bag.

And add a few spoonfuls of the lemon dressing, another Tablespoon lemon juice, and some garlic.

Massage the bag until the chicken is coated.

Marinate at least an hour, or even better… overnight in the fridge.

Preheat the grill to medium/ medium high heat.

And grill the chicken 4 to 6 minutes per side.

Cook time will depend on the thickness of your chicken and how your grill heats.

I recommend using an instant read thermometer to make sure it’s above 165 degrees.

Let the chicken rest while you assemble the salad.

I am using walnuts, blueberries, and feta cheese.

Mix up your toppings with what you prefer.

ingredients for the salad

First, put some spring salad mix in four bowls or plates (or containers if meal prepping).

Then, once the chicken has cooled slightly, slice it up.

And place half of a chicken breast over each of the four salads.

Top each salad with your toppings such as walnuts, blueberries, and feta cheese and we are ready to dig in.
