Sweet, salty and crunchy – it’s all in here
Tender chunks of Applegate Naturals® Grilled Chicken Breast Strips get all fancied up with the addition of fresh blueberries and pleasantly pungent rosemary in this Whole30-friendly Blueberry Chicken Salad with Rosemary.
At first it may seem odd to add blueberries to chicken salad, but they’re actually the perfect way to add just a hint of sweetness, gorgeous color and cancer-fighting antioxidants. The same goes for rosemary, an often overlooked herb but one that has a distinct and pine-like flavor that pairs beautifully with sweet and savory alike. Top that off with some omega-3 rich walnuts and you’ve got yourself a superfood chicken salad! You’re going to love the burst of flavor you get with every bite!
