We always love a good bowl of fresh salad, whether served as a side dish or by itself for those who are more health-conscious or who simply want a quick meal. Potbelly uptown salad is one of the best choices you can get. And what’s better is that the ingredients to this Potbelly salad are very accessible so you can recreate it at home! Why not serve it as a side to our pan-seared steak for a full meal experience?

This Potbelly chicken salad is really refreshing because it has the acidity and sweetness from fruits like grapes and cranberries. It also has that crunch from the lettuce and glazed walnuts. But what makes this salad most distinct is the sharp taste from the blue cheese crumble and the Italian vinaigrette dressing that really brings the salad together.
