Fresh And Easy Grilled Chicken Salad With Balsamic Fig Dressing Recipe

Grilled Chicken Salad With Balsamic Fig Dressing Recipe. Have you ever tried flavored vinegar? Or olive oil? There are some truly tasty ones out there. On a trip to Boston, I ventured into the Boston Olive Oil Company. I tasted a few oils and vinegars and just fell in love with this balsamic fig vinegar. I’ve played around with it in different recipes and just love it as a component in salad dressing. Homemade dressings are easy to make. They are super fast to put together and very easy. 

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.

Do ahead tip: grill the chicken in advance. If you’re unsure how to grill boneless, skinless chicken breasts, you can click over to my grilled chicken recipe. You could even make the Grilled Chicken Salad With Balsamic Fig Dressing Recipe the night before and just add the salad dressing before you eat it.
