I am dreaming of temperatures in the 70's spent on my back patio with a cold glass of something and my wonderful husband at the grill,holding a pair of tongs. Our dog will be laying in the cool grass and chasing the birds that dare land in his back yard (no worries...he has never caught one and no birds were harmed while writing this post)!
Are you waiting for and wishing for Spring as much as I am? Do you long for frosty glasses of lemonade and cool summer salads? Look no more!! I am a salad
Doesn't that look soooooo cool, crisp and inviting!!
I can just look at the picture and know I am going to love it. I bet you will too!!
Kiwi Chicken Salad
This simple, flavorful recipe is the perfect way to use up leftover chicken breast. The savory flavor of grilled, rotisserie, or oven-baked chicken—whatever you’ve got in the fridge!--mixed with the tartness of tropical fruits, and the subtle bite of cilantro-lime dressing is a splendid combination. The recipe can be made in minutes and stores well in the fridge up to 12 hours.
1 cup cooked chicken breast, diced
4 kiwi fruit, peeled and sliced
2 starfruit, peeled and sliced
3 tablespoons red onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup red cabbage, thinly sliced
Juice of 3 limes
3 tablespoons light olive oil
3 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons chopped cilantro
Salt to taste
Place the chicken, kiwi, starfruit, onion, and cabbage in a large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together the lime juice, olive oil, honey and cilantro. Add a pinch of salt. Pour the dressing over the chicken mixture and carefully stir until evenly coated with the dressing. Serve & enjoy!
