Chicken / Dinner / Salad

Caprese Salad with Chicken

I had one of the best. salads. ever. when I was out at a restaurant for my birthday dinner last month.  The tastes were so simple even I was able to recreate it!  It only has five ingredients!

Ingredients

  • Grilled chicken
  • Salad greens – I prefer a mix of spinach, ice berg, and Romaine
  • Tomato
  • Mozzarella cheese, fresh
  • Balsamic vinegar

Preparation

  • Pour some balsamic vinegar into a sauce pan.  Reduce the vinegar over medium-low heat.  If you set the heat too high, your vinegar will get gooey and sticky.  The goal is to reduce it to a sauce which can be easily drizzled.  So…keep an eye on it and stir it often.
  • Assemble your plate – lettuce topped with chicken.  Layer the tomatoes and mozzarella slices.  Drizzle the balsamic vinegar reduction over everything.
  • Eat up!

Variation

As you can see in my picture, we added avocado and sprinkled some parmesan cheese over it.  These were awesome additions!
