Balsamic Watermelon Chicken Salad with Blue Cheese

Balsamic Watermelon Chicken Salad with Blue Cheese 

Serves 4


This Summer salad is topped with thick and sweet balsamic vinegar to give it a burst of bold flavor! Blue cheese, toasted almonds and olive oil amp it up with healthy fats!


Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cooking Time: 0 minutes 


Ingredients:

½ cup balsamic vinegar

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 teaspoon sea salt

½ teaspoon black pepper

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

8 cups baby spinach

1 cup watermelon cubes

½ pound leftover boneless & skinless chicken breast, chopped

4 ounces blue cheese, crumbled

¼ cup sliced & toasted almonds



Instructions:


If toasting the sliced almonds, preheat the oven to 350 F (178 C). 


Spread almonds on a baking tray in an even layer. Toast in the oven until golden brown, or about 2-3 minutes, being careful to check on them so that they do not burn. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.


Add balsamic vinegar to a small saucepan and bring to a simmer. Stir often, being careful not to burn, allowing the vinegar to thicken. This will take about 10 minutes. 


Add all of the salad ingredients to a large bowl and gently toss together until well-combined.


Drizzle the thickened balsamic vinegar over the salad. 


Serve between 4, storing any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. 


Enjoy!
