Balsamic Chicken with Red, White & Blue Salsa

Thursday, July 02, 2015

From our skinny table to yours...

Planning a 4th of July BBQ this year?  Look no further for dinner ideas!  We came up with a super fun, super festive and super easy meal idea we KNOW you will LOVE!  Need we even say super healthy?  That's a given right ;)

Enter Red, White and Blue Salsa...

How fun is this?!  Our 5 minute salsa consists of fresh mozzarella (our fav), blueberries, grape tomatoes and sliced basil!  Yep, 4 ingredients :)
We served our festive salsa up over grilled balsamic chicken.  Simply whip up your quick salsa and then put those to men to work on the grill for your 4th of July BBQ!  ;)

We topped the whole dish with balsamic drizzle for a little extra flavor and beauty!  Talk about simple!
Hope you lovely ladies have a fabulous and safe 4th of July weekend!  Cheers XO
