Chicken, apple, grape and walnut salad with yoghurt dressing

Method

Summer is all about salads. But, instead of the usual boring side salad, make the salad the main course with this delicious recipe!

 

  1. Place the chicken fillets between two plastic bags and use a meat mallet to flatten slightly.
  2. Brush the fillets with 5ml of the olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Heat a griddle pan on high heat and grill the chicken fillets for about 3 minutes on each side until cooked and golden brown. Remove from the heat and keep to the side to cool.
  4. Heat a frying pan on medium heat. Add walnuts and roast it until crisp and golden brown – this will only take a few minutes. Be careful not to burn the nuts. Remove from pan and cool. Mix the following ingredients together to make your salad dressing: Greek yoghurt, sour cream, lime juice and zest, chopped chives and the rest of the olive oil. Mix well.
  5. Cut the chicken fillets into strips and mix with the grapes, celery, walnuts and the apple.
  6. Stir the yoghurt dressing through the salad and dish up into two plates.
  7. Garnish with extra chives, grapes and lime wedges.
  8. This salad is delicious once ice-cold, a few hours after you’ve made it.
