Grilled Chicken Caprese Salad

Thursday, April 11, 2013

From our skinny table to yours ...

We are loving this warmer weather! Two major benefits of spring are getting extra exercise outside & craving light, fresh, healthy food vs. the heavy winter comfort foods.

Nothing says Spring like a beautiful salad for dinner! Tonight we're making a fresh tomato Caprese salad with roasted red peppers, sundried tomatoes and fresh basil. We topped our salad with grilled balsamic chicken but this would be just as delicious meat free as a vegetarian option. Drizzle with a touch of heart healthy extra virgin olive oil and finish off with balsamic vinegar.

Hope you enjoy this simple & delicious summer salad!
