Refreshing Grilled Chicken Salad Recipe

“This recipe is light, zippy and flavorful. It's a nice healthy salad that's great for a luncheon with friends.” And with blueberries, walnuts and olive oil, it's nutritionally exceptional, too. Denise Rasmussen - Salina, Kansas
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + marinating Grill: 10 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 6 cups spring mix salad greens
  • 2 cups cubed seedless watermelon
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 medium sweet yellow pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts, toasted

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the lime juice, honey, oil, salt and pepper. Pour 1/3 cup into a large resealable plastic bag; add chicken. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Cover and refrigerate remaining lime juice mixture for dressing.
  • 2. Drain and discard marinade. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Grill chicken, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 4-7 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 170°.

"Very Good! Thought the lime may be too much, but it added just the right amount of tang. We subbed the watermelon w/ strawberries. Also added a touch of Parmesan cheese."

"Personally I don't care for blueberies but I do like and did substitute Boysenberries. I put the watermellon in a seperate dish for a dessert. I also added some cubed fresh pineapple and some Asparagus I had cooked earlier and cut into 1 inch pieces. I also made some homemade garlic-cheese croutons from whle wjheat bread that I cooked in a skillet in a small amount of butter to coat. It made an excellent dinner."
