Dressings | Portillo's



Dear Chicken Pecan Salad/Poppyseed Fruit with Chicken Salad lovers,

Lettuce explain.

Yes, we are removing these two salads from our menu this Spring. We hear you, and we know you loved these salads very much, but sadly, not as many people loved them as much as you did. We understand that we need to a-dress your needs, so we have shared the two dressing recipes below. Now you can make these salads at home, any time you’d like!

We also tossed together a new salad menu that we know you’ll love. Each new salad is full of fresh, seasonal ingredients and lighter dressings. Check out our new recipes here and find your new favorite today!

  • If you loved the Chicken Pecan Salad, you’ll love the new Tuscan Chicken & Bacon Salad.
  • If you loved the Poppy seed Fruit with Chicken Salad, you’ll love the Fresh Berry & Toasted Almond Salad.

We understand you may need an outlet after hearing this news. Please contact us here if you would like to kindly* voice your frustration to our Guest Services Team.

Thank you for being such big Portillo’s fans and sticking with us as we continue to raise the (salad) bar.

Romaine calm and carrot on,

Your friends at Portillo’s
