This weekend I used a little bit of the extra break time to go through the summer issues of my Cooking Light magazines and find any recipes that I may have missed during the busy summer months. I found this jewel of a recipe and thought it would be a great way to use the smoked chicken that I made for the holiday celebration.
The dressing is extremely simple, but plays such a wonderful role in connecting all the ingredients together. Balsamic and strawberries were meant to be together. The grilled chicken makes this salad into a meal, especially if you only share it three ways.The feta brings a little pop and tang into the dish, making your test buds explode with happiness.
I want to make sure that I have this recipes saved into my recipe file so that I can find it again and make a great, quick dinner.
This was good. I especially liked the strawberries which were in season. It would be good without the chicken too. Unfortunately this is too light for my husband to call it a dinner. The orange couscous featured with it was yummy.
This was an amazing, fresh salad bursting with flavor. Easy prep and quick cook time ... I used chicken tenderloins and it speeded up the process even more. Served with the Green Onion Orange Couscous. My husband raved about it ... we will be making this a lot!
Salads are a staple in our house, I'm lucky that my husband likes salads and likes most of CL salad recipes, but this one he even ate the next day (made a fresh batch). He usually doesn't like the same meal for dinner then for lunch the next day. I did flatten out an oversized chicken breast but it still took a little longer to cook through than the recipe called for. Otherwise this is a highly recommended recipe we will make over and over again.
I loved this salad...simple to put together and easy to fix. Definitely make again.
