Ingredients

For the salad

  • 2 grilled chicken breasts (I just season them simply and grill a bunch in the beginning of the week to throw into salads or any meal!)
  • 1 peach, halved and pitted
  • honey for drizzling
  • 2 heads of romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella balls, halved
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • avocado, sliced

For the dressing

  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • pinch of salt and pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat your grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Drizzle the flesh of the peach lightly with honey and rub it around to coat. Grill peach halves for 2-3 minutes, skin side down, until caramelized and grill marks appear. Set aside.

  2. To a blender or food processor, add the garlic, balsamic vinegar, honey, olive oil, salt, and pepper, and blend until smooth and creamy. Season to taste with extra salt and pepper if desired.

  3. To assemble salads, top romaine with grilled peach halves, mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, avocado, fresh basil leaves, and grilled chicken. Drizzle with desired amount of dressing and serve!
