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!
