This salad is one of my all time favorites to meal prep because it lasts forever in the fridge! You can make it on Sunday and know that on Friday it will still be fresh and delicious. Juicy chicken, sweet grapes, sharp cheddar and crunchy walnuts all play together to make a filling lunchtime salad that does not lack in flavor.
You can use any kind of dressing with this salad. Balsamic vinegar, Italian or even a raspberry vinaigrette work beautifully with the textures and flavors of the salad. Make sure you keep the dressing on the side in it’s own little container or the lettuce will get super soggy!! Enjoy!
