How to make Fuji Apple Salad

Steps to make Fuji Apple Salad

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — This recipe for Fuji Apple Salad with White Balsamic Vinaigrette will be a refreshing addition to your meal line-up. This copy-cat recipe is pretty close to Panera’s original! It’s delicious and an easy spring dinner. 

  • 4-5 cups spring salad mix or romaine leafy blend 
  • 1 cup apple chips
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 3/4 cup pecans 
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup 
  • 1/4 red onion, sliced thinly
  • 1/3 cup crumbled gorgonzola cheese 

White Balsamic Vinaigrette 

  • 1/2 extra virgin olive oil 
  • 1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar 
  • 3 tablespoons raw honey 
  • 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 clove garlic, grated 

1. Heat oven to 425º. Spread pecan on a baking sheet. Roast for 5-7 minutes, until they are golden-brown. Remove from oven and drizzle maple syrup over them, gently tossing them on the baking sheet with a fork to make sure each pecan gets covered in maple syrup. Sprinkle with a pinch of kosher salt. 
2. Heat a skillet to medium high, and spray with cooking spray, or drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle salt on both sides of chicken breasts, and sear for 3-5 minutes each side, until chicken is fully cooked through. Remove, let cool, and gently slice. 
3. Build salad by adding lettuce, then KORU® apple chips (or Annessa’s Apple Chips recipe), sliced chicken, glazed pecans, sliced red onion, and gorgonzola. 
4. Whisk all vinaigrette ingredients together and drizzle on salad. Enjoy immediately!
