This is such a “Great” summertime recipe. I came up with it by basically just using some ingredients I had already had in the fridge. Fruity with a little bit of heat. This salad just screams summer, grilling and lots of fun.
1 large watermelon
6 boneless skinless chicken breast
1/2 bundle strawberries halved
1 bulb butter lettuce,Boston lettuce or Baby spinach
1 1/2 cup Queso cheese
6 Thai peppers thinly sliced
Salt and pepper
Preheat grill at 400 (350 for indoor grills). Salt and pepper both sides of chicken. Grill chicken on both sides for approx 4-5 mins till juices run clear. Remove and let rest for 5 mins before slicing.
Take one half of your watermelon and cut into six 1 inch sliced. Add cleaned and chopped lettuce on top of each slice. Next add sliced chicken, strawberries, sprinkle Queso and peppers. Take the other half of your watermelon and scoop out the insides and chop into medium sized pieces. Add watermelon pieces on top of salad and sprinkle some freshly grated pepper and a bit of salt on top. Drizzle each salad with balsamic and serve.
Cooking time: approx 10 to 12 mins
