Chick-fil-A Market Salad (Copycat)

Chick-fil-A Market Salad with seasoned sliced chicken, blue cheese, apples, strawberries, blueberries, granola and walnuts with an apple cider vinaigrette..

Chick-fil-A is best known for their deliciously unique Chick-fil-A Nuggets and Lemonade but I’ve been completely won over by this delicious salad.

What is in a Chick-fil-A Market Salad?

Berries and blue cheese are basically my happy place this summer and this Chick-fil-A Market Salad is the perfect summer salad. No croutons, we’ve got walnuts and granola instead (which makes me feel healthier) and instead of tomatoes we’ve got berries.

This salad may be different than most you are used to. In fact the first bite may even be one  you pause to see if you enjoy. But I guarantee you finish this salad if you give it a try.

A delicious and easy apple cider vinaigrette with granola and walnuts that don’t get soggy like croutons do, you’ll love the crunch of the salad and the softness and sweetness of the berries. The blue cheese add a delicious creamy and rich element.

The chicken is presented in an interesting way. Chick-fil-A slices it’s grilled chicken for salads VERY thinly. To recreate this I refrigerate the chicken after cooking. With a sharp knife, the chicken is so easy to slice thinly.

Salads at Chick-fil-A are a healthy option and easy, but they’re also rather expensive. With just a bit of prep work you can make a large bowl of this salad for a summer bbq or picnic without spending nearly as much money. Plus you won’t be tempted by the crazy delicious lemonade and waffle fries.

Can you make this Chick-fil-A Market Salad ahead of time?

ABSOLUTELY!
  • Add the ingredients to the dressing in a small covered jar and keep it in the fridge.
  • Cook the chicken and let it cool before slicing.
  • When assembling add the rest of the ingredients, slice the chicken thinly and shake the dressing before pouring.
