Salads don’t have to be boring. With a little love and some 🥬 healthy ingredients, they can be delicious, nutritious and packed with interesting flavors and textures. This Kourtney Kardashian Salad is a prime example of that. You know I don’t know celeb news, but I do know a good salad when I see one. And this one is 🌟 A-LIST 🌟! It uses juicy pieces of chicken breast (leftovers are great for this!), as well as bright orange 🍊 juice and a colorful assortment of add-ins. It’s bright, it’s fresh and will take your lunch to the next level.

Why You’ll Love The Kourtney Kardashian Salad

The Kourtney Kardashian Salad is a make-ahead dream! You can batch-cook the chicken and have the salad dressing made ahead and stored in a covered jar in the fridge for the week. Have a variety of 🥒 veggies ready to go so all you have to do is assemble and pack it up! The flavors and textures will take your lunch to the next level thanks to orange juice and a variety of toppings such as crunchy seeds and crisp veggies. This is not any old boring salad! 🥗

How to Prepare The Kourtney Kardashian Salad

🔪 First, use a sharp knife to cut one skinless, boneless chicken breast into small cubes.

🍊 Then in a large bowl, toss the chicken with the juice of 1 orange or tangerine, salt, pepper and avocado oil.

🔥 Next, heat your grill pan or skillet and then grill the chicken for 2-3 minutes on each side.

🥬 Meanwhile, in a large salad bowl, add the romaine, and any toppings you choose. Then add in the cooked chicken.

🥣 In a separate bowl or glass measuring cup, whisk together the ingredients for the dressing.

🥗 Finally, pour the dressing on top of the salad, toss and enjoy!

Nonna’s Tip 🥗

For a plant-based salad, top this with tofu or chickpeas and substitute the honey for agave or maple syrup.

Common Questions

can this Salad be made vegetarian?

The beauty of big, fresh salads like The Kourtney Kardashian Salad is that you can adapt them however you’d like! For a totally plant-based salad, top this with tofu or chickpeas and substitute the honey for agave or maple syrup. In this case, I would add some orange juice to the dressing so you still get that beautiful, bright citrus flavor.

How I store the salad dressing?

I like to make and refrigerate a big batch of this dressing so it’s ready to go when I need it. Pour it into a large Mason jar and store it covered in the fridge for the week.

Can I substitute the orange juice in the marinade?

Yes, you could definitely use lemon or lime juice if you prefer, instead of the orange/tangerine juice.

Would any other proteins work in this salad?

I think grilled and sliced steak would be delicious on top of The Kourtney Kardashian Salad, as would shrimp or salmon.

can I use another lettuce variety instead of romaine?

Yes, any lettuce variety would work in this salad. Make it with iceberg lettuce, Boston, or a crisp coleslaw. Make your life even easier and use a prewashed boxed mix that you love.

I don’t have a grill pan, how else can I cook the chicken?

You can bake this chicken in the oven, on the barbecue or in a non-stick skillet on the stove.

Hi! I'm Sneji. Nice to meet you!

I am more commonly known as “The Modern Nonna” on social media where I create easy home cooked meals with a modern twist. I was born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria and learned how to cook at the best culinary school in the world – my grandma’s kitchen. I lived in Greece on the Island of Crete with my parents for a while and then moved to Toronto, Canada when I was in grade 5. I started to really cook and experiment with food 11 years ago when I was 21 years old. Everything I currently know is a reflection of some part of my life…
