In spite of the holiday hustle and bustle, I’ve been trying to keep it healthy. This seasonal salad is full of protein and lots of fresh greens and fruit to keep you going. The Gorgonzola and pomegranate go really well together. Grilling up the thinly sliced chicken breasts doesn’t take much time and adds a ton of flavor.
For this holiday inspired salad, you’ll need:
1lb of fresh arugula
1 1/2lbs thinly sliced chicken breasts
1/2 cup of Gorgonzola cheese crumbles
1/2 cup fresh pomegranate seeds
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon garlic sea salt
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
Salt and Pepper to taste
Freshly sliced pomegranate. So gorgeous! Use a spoon to scoop out the seeds. Set aside.
Drizzle the chicken breasts with one tablespoon olive oil and 1/2 tablespoon of garlic sea salt. Grill over medium fire until completely cooked. About five minutes each side.
Slice into strips.
Toss together sliced grilled chicken, pomegranate seeds, lemon juice, remaining garlic sea salt and olive oil. Place over a heaping bed of fresh arugula. Sprinkle with Gorgonzola and add salt and pepper to taste.

It turned out SPECTACULAR and was a huge hit with the family…they even ate it for breakfast. Will definitely make this again.
