  • safeway grocers grilled chicken salad

    A couple of summers ago or maybe even last summer I was in safeway and picked up one of their recipe cards for the week. I have lost the recipe and would love to have it. It consisted of mixed salad greens, some kind of fruit and I can't remember exactly what the fruit was, grilled chicken, maybe some other vegetables, and I think a balsalmic vinagrette. It was nice and light and summery.

    Hope it works for you. Looks delicious

    Grilled Chicken Salad with Seasonal Fruit

    This salad looks and tastes great and can be varied with the seasons. In summer use your favorite type of berry along with the grilled chicken, and in winter use orange segments (or try dried apricots or cranberries. The dressing is a sweet vinaigrette, and complements both the fruit and the poultry.

    1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
    1/2 cup pecans
    1/3 cup red wine vinegar
    1/2 cup white sugar
    1 cup vegetable oil
    1/2 onion, minced
    1 teaspoon ground mustard
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
    2 heads Bibb lettuce - rinsed, dried and torn
    1 cup sliced fresh strawberries

    Preheat the grill for high heat.

    Lightly oil the grill grate. Grill chicken 8 minutes on each side, or until juices run clear. Remove from heat, cool, and slice.

    Meanwhile, place pecans in a dry skillet over medium-high heat. Cook pecans until fragrant, stirring frequently, about 8 minutes. Remove from heat, and set aside.

    In a blender, combine the red wine vinegar, sugar, vegetable oil, onion, mustard, salt, and pepper. Process until smooth.

    Arrange lettuce on serving plates. Top with grilled chicken slices, strawberries, and pecans. Drizzle with the dressing to serve.
