Chicken Caprese Salad

A twist on a traditional caprese with added avocado and grilled chicken.

2 cups spinach

1 cup fresh basil, torn

2 grilled chicken breast, sliced

1/2 avocado, cubed

1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

2 oz fresh mozzarella, cubed

1/2 cup balsamic vinegar

For the dressing, heat a small sauce pan and pour in the balsamic vinegar. Bring to a boil then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring consistently to make sure it doesn’t burn. Once the balsamic has thickened pull it off of the heat and pour in a glass jar to cool.

By reducing the balsamic it brings out the flavor and heightens the sweetness.

In a large bowl toss together the spinach and torn basil.

Add in the cherry tomatoes, avocado, mozzarella, and chicken breast.

Drizzle the balsamic reduction on top and enjoy!
