This is another great hot weather meal. You can grill the chicken outside or skip the cooking all together and use rotisserie chicken from the store. The salad has a lot of flavor and is a nice blend of sweet and tangy. It’s also very light, which is perfect for a hot night.
Chicken Salad With Grapes and Blue Cheese
2 small heads Boston or Bibb lettuce, torn into pieces
1/2 red onion, finely chopped
1 cup (about 1/4 pound) green grapes, halved
3 ounces blue cheese, crumbled
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
kosher salt and pepper
2 grilled chicken breasts, sliced or rotisserie chicken, thinly sliced
In a large bowl, combine the lettuce, onion, grapes, and blue cheese.
In a small bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, vinegar, oil, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
Divide the salad and chicken among plates. Serve with the vinaigrette.
