This Grilled Chicken Salad With Balsamic Fig Dressing Recipe was a recent weekend lunch. While grilling the chicken breast, I chopped some vegetables, then sliced the breast and added it to the ingredients.
For the dressing, I used 1 tablespoon olive oil, 2 tablespoons balsamic fig vinegar, 1/2 clove of minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Just whisk it all up and pour it over the top of the salad.
