Chicken walnut and blue cheese salad has loads of flavour and a wonderful crunch too. It’s perfect for a quick and easy lunch or weeknight dinner option!
This chicken walnut and blue cheese salad just goes to prove that simple salads with simple dressings do not have to be boring.
You see the tangy blue cheese and sweet honey dressing makes this simple salad sing!
The inspiration for this recipe was a lunch that I had in a restaurant in London recently.
So, if this recipe is good enough that a restaurant serves it as an offering on it’s lunch time menu then it sure is good enough for you to make and enjoy at home too!
All of the ingredients for this chicken walnut salad should be easily bought items from your local supermarket. Or storecupboard condiments.
If you can buy pre-cooked chicken, rather than cooking the chicken from scratch then this recipe will be even more quicker for you.
However, I have included how to cook it from scratch just in case cooked chicken isn’t available for you!
