Pear & Pomegranate Chicken Salad

Friday, November 15, 2013

From our skinny table to yours ...

First, we want to give a shout out to our #ShakeItUp November Challengers!  Welcome to week 2 :) There's not much better than LOSING weight over the holiday season ... right?!

Today we are sharing our pear & pomegranate chicken salad that is fresh, festive and comes together in just 15 minutes!  This is the perfect meal to serve up on any busy weeknight because it's quicker to cook than ordering take out AND you will feel so good about eating and serving this up to your family.

Tonight we are taking full advantage of the fresh fall produce with minimal cooking but maximum flavor!  This colorful combination starts with a bed of organic baby greens, ripe pears and fresh mozzarella cheese.  We top this off with grilled balsamic chicken and pomegranate seeds for crunch & color.  Finish this off with our homemade balsamic dressing for a sweet finish!

This salad would also make a great 'meatless Monday' entree by skipping the chicken breast altogether.  We grilled up just a half pound of chicken for 4 portions so went super light on the protein as this salad is plenty 
satisfying as is!

Hope you enjoy :)
