Simple Copycat Panera Fuji Apple Salad with Chicken

Click to DOWNLOAD printable recipe

The Fuji Apple Salad is my favorite salad at Panera. Now that they sell the dressing in the grocery stores, I like to make mine at home! 

I'm a bit of a picky eater and don't like tomatoes or onions, so those don't make it in to the photo (haha). I also like to substitute Craisins for the apple chips. But the Panera version includes those. Bottom line, it's your salad, so make it how you like it!

INGREDIENTS:

  • Romaine lettuce (or your favorite blend)
  • Grilled or pulled chicken
  • Chopped tomatoes
  • Red onion rings
  • Toasted pecan pieces
  • Gorgonzola cheese crumbles
  • Apple chips (substitute Craisins)
  • Panera's Fuji Apple Dressing
INSTRUCTIONS:
  • Toast pecan pieces in a 350* oven, stirring/tossing periodically until fragrant (about 10 min). Let cool.
  • Grill or bake a couple of chicken breasts, or buy a rotisserie chicken and use pulled chicken.
  • Chop or tear romaine lettuce, wash, and spin dry in your salad spinner.
  • Gather the rest of the toppings and assemble per your preferences.

When making salad as the family dinner, we just pull out all the toppings and dressings and let each person design their own salad. This is usually my default because it's delicious!
