This Chicken, Bacon and Avocado Chopped Salad is tossed with a simple red wine vinaigrette, and always tastes so fresh and delicious.



Salad Ingredients:

  • 6 slices bacon, cooked and diced
  • 4 ounces crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
  • 1 head of Romaine lettuce (about 8 ounces), chopped
  • 1 large avocado, diced
  • 1 pound (about 23 cups) diced cooked chicken
  • half a small red onion, very thinly sliced

Red Wine Vinaigrette Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • pinch of fine sea salt and freshly-cracked black pepper


  1. Make the vinaigrette. Vigorously whisk all ingredients together in a mixing bowl (or shake together in a sealed jar) until completely emulsified.
  2. Toss the salad. Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Drizzle evenly with the vinaigrette, and toss gently to combine.
  3. Serve. Serve immediately and enjoy!
