To get dinner on the table in a hurry, prep the chicken, green beans, and dressing up to a day in advance and refrigerate. Assemble the salad just before serving it.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over high; season chicken with salt and pepper. In two batches, cook chicken until opaque throughout, 1 to 2 minutes per side; transfer to a plate. When cool enough to handle, slice chicken crosswise.

  • In a medium saucepan, bring 2 inches salted water to a boil. Add green beans; cover and cook until crisp-tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Rinse under cold water until cool; drain well.

  • Make dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, jam, mustard, and remaining 2 tablespoons oil; season with salt and pepper.

  • In a large bowl, toss arugula and radicchio with all but 1 tablespoon dressing. Divide salad among four plates; arrange chicken, green beans, cherries, and almonds on top. Drizzle with remaining dressing; serve immediately.

Cook's Notes

Toss the greens with most of the vinaigrette, and drizzle the plated salads with the rest of the dressing.

How old do I have to be to get my CDL permit in Tennessee? How many questions are on a cdl exam?

My husband and I thought this recipe was decent but not fantastic enough to make again. As another reviewer mentioned, the cooking time on the chicken may be a bit short for you (some of my pieces were undercooked). I used chicken breast tenders.

This salad is so yummy. Toast the almonds and be sure to use dried cherries (don't substitute with raisins or craisins).

Tiny word of caution -- make sure that the chicken is done after a few minutes only on each side.

This salad was excellent. I used Simply Fruit Apricot Spreadable Fruit because I needed to make it sugar free and it was excellent. I think next time I will also add chopped apricots to just give it a little more apricot flavor...along with the cherries. Really good, will definitely make this again. My kids liked it too, they even ate the green beans.

This sald looks beautiful and tasted delicious. I loved how it is plated, not a jumbled mess all tossed together, more like a mini-meal all laid out.
