Caprese Chicken Salad

20131001-220935

Crazy for caprese! I love the combination of flavors, textures, and freshness in this recipe: ripe tomatoes, fresh mozzarella cheese, basil, and a drizzle of balsamic. It requires few ingredients, but results in a lot of flavor. My boyfriend went to Wyoming to visit his parents last weekend and came back with home-grown tomatoes from his mom’s garden, so we put them to good use with this delicious dinner!

Ingredients:

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinaigrette
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 4 slices mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tomato
  • 4 large basil leaves
  • 2 cups spinach

How-to:

  1. Prepare chicken (on the grill or however you prefer). While cooking, pour balsamic vinaigrette into small sauce pan and heat until boiling. Stir in butter until melted, then simmer.
  2. Place chicken on bed of spinach. Top with mozzarella cheese, basil leaves and tomato slices. Drizzle with balsamic vinaigrette. Serve warm.
