Chicken, Pear & Spinach Salad

Serving Size:Serves 4


  • 1/3 cup silvered almonds
  • 1 pound grilled boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cool or cold
  • 1 (about 3/4 lb) firm ripe pear
  • 2 Tablespoons Brennan's Cellars Balsamic Vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons Brennan's Cellars Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 3/4 pound baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onion (including tops)
  • 1/3 cup Brennan's Crumbled Feta Cheese
  • pepper



To make this recipe even quicker, use a roasted chicken from the deli.


In a 6- to 8-inch frying pan over medium heat, stir nuts until golden, about 6 minutes. Let cool. Cut chicken into 1/4 -inch strips 2 to 3 inches long. Rinse pear and cut lengthwise into quarters. Trim core from each quarter and discard; thinly slice quarters lengthwise.

In a large bowl, mix vinegar, olive oil, and garlic salt. Add spinach, cranberries, green onions, almonds, chicken, and 3/4 of the pear slices. Mix gently to coat. 

Spoon 1/4 of the salad onto 4 dinner plates. Top portions with remaining pear slices and sprinkle with cheese. Add garlic salt and pepper to taste.
