Healthy Recipe: Blueberry Chicken Salad

Blueberries are low in calories and high in antioxidants, so they definitely fall into the super food category. I always throw a few on my cereal when I have them off hand, but I never thought about throwing them in a salad too.

That is why when I found this blueberry chicken salad recipe, I just had to share it with you all. Especially since it sounds tasty along with being healthy and rich in antioxidants!

this reminds me of the panera chicken strawberry poppyseed salad...romaine lettuce, pecans, blueberries, strawberries, mandarin oranges, pineapple chunks, chicken and a sugar-free poppyseed dressing. SUCH a change from my usually savory caesar salad. so fresh and light! hmm what's for lunch...

I can't help but wince at the thought of a blueberry-chicken combo.

Blueberries are out of season now...everytime I look at them in the grocery store they are mouldy. :\

Yum! Another possibility would be to add fruits like strawberries and use a light raspberry based vinaigrette.

Sounds good, I'll have to try it. I have to tell you I had a fantastic blueberry chicken salad this past weekend at a bridal shower. The dressing was made with with fresh basil, grated lemon zest, and a little bit of reduced fat mayonnaise. Tossed with almonds, and halved grapes, and served over a bed of greens. Fantastic flavoring.
