Kitchen Sink Salad Recipe From Our San Jose Personal Trainers

Our San Jose personal trainers have got a good one for you today! It’s a DELICIOUS, no-cook lunch or dinner recipe.

CONFESSION: We stole this idea from chef Guy Fieri. Except our San Jose personal trainers mixed it up a bit to make it:

  1. Healthier,
  2. Heartier, and
  3. Just as delicious.


It’s called the Kitchen Sink Salad because you can put basically anything you want in it.

Feel free to make it your own because you really can’t go wrong. If you have other veggies in the fridge, add ‘em!

Some leftover roasted sweet potatoes would be really good. Or sprinkle on some dried cranberries! Yum.

To make it vegan, our San Jose personal trainers recommend swapping some crispy tofu or quinoa for the chicken.

Kitchen Sink Salad (makes 2-3 large salad servings)

For the dressing:

  • Handful of fresh basil or parsley
  • ½ cup balsamic vinegar
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Dash of freshly ground pepper
  • ½ cup (120 ml) extra virgin olive oil


For the salad:

  • 1 (12 oz) package mixed baby salad greens
  • 1 medium cucumber, peeled, cut in half, and diced
  • 1 large tomato, diced
  • ½ - ¾ cup chopped cooked chicken
  • 1 cup rinsed & drained cannellini beans
  • 12 black olives, pitted and halved (optional) (can swap for avocado!)
  • 2 tbsp pecans or walnuts, chopped
  • 2 tbsp goat cheese


Make the dressing:

Place all the dressing ingredients except olive oil in a high-speed blender. Pulse until combined. Turn on the blender and slowly drizzle in the olive oil until emulsified. Pour into a container and keep in the fridge until you’re ready to use it. (You’ll have leftovers!)

Make the salad:

In a large bowl, toss together the salad greens, cucumber, tomato, chicken, beans, and olives. Add the dressing right before you’re ready to eat it. Top with the nuts & goat cheese.
