Fast Food! Ok, Relatively Swift Food.

I’m a bit of a salad freak. First and foremost, I love fresh food, so a salad is the perfect combination of all things fresh! Plus, what could be faster after a day of work, a quick catch-up on the DVR, working on your cook-book and food blog than throwing together a salad. In the summer I love to add local fresh produce from market and maybe something grilled. In this case the “something grilled” was chicken! Take a look at what I spent a whole 15 minutes on!

Italian Salad with Grilled Pesto Chicken

You will need:

Baby Romain Greens

Yellow Bell Pepper

Pine Nuts

Mozzarella Balls

Heirloom Tomatoes

Chicken Breast

Jarred Pesto Sauce

Caesar Dressing

Slather the chicken with pesto and place on the grill. Cook on both sides, about 5-7 minutes per side, depending on the temperature of your grill.

While the chicken is cooking, dress the plate with greens, a few slices of pepper, tomato and mozzarella.

After the chicken has been removed from the grill and has rested for five minutes, slice into pieces and place on top of the greens. Drizzle with dressing and add pine nuts. Super fast, super easy and super good for you! All you need is a place to sit outside and a friend to share it with! Enjoy!
