Grilled Ginger-Sesame Chicken Salad
It’s a busy time of year. Schools are finishing up their final weeks of class, graduation celebrations are in full swing, and for me, June 1st always marks the beginning of the summer season! I love the summer months! The sun is out when I leave for work, and it’s still bright for several hours when I return. For the next three months or so, we are outdoors enjoying the sunshine!
Soooo, Mr. Weatherman, do you think you can cooperate and stick with the script? This past Saturday we went on a beautiful hike wearing shorts and tank tops, while enjoying the views from rolling hills, and on Sunday we were back to wearing sweatshirts and hibernating in the house!
Even though I was thinking about warming up with some soup, I wanted to kick off the summer season by heating up the grill. My first summer meal was Grilled Ginger-Seasame Chicken Salad. I saw this recipe while glancing through the magazines we have in the break room at work, Redbook, May 2013.
The flavors are wonderful together and I didn’t change a thing, except marinade the chicken in more sauce then the recipe suggested. You want to let the sauce bathe the chicken for a good thirty minutes. After that, this meal can be put together in a flash.
I would serve this salad for a luncheon, and even bring it to a potluck. The recipe makes 4 generous servings which was enough to fill us up for dinner, but it can also be served as a side and feed twice as many people.
Kick off the summer months by heating up your grill! This is the time of year when I get lots of hubby help cooking from our outdoor kitchen! Who does the grilling at your house?
