Balsamic chicken salad

How is everyone faring in this rather testing January heatwave? I am far happier in the heat, than in the cold, but even I must confess that the days have been quite draining lately.

Tis’ perfect weather to keep my salad obsession going though!

On this particular occasion – the star of the show was this gorgeous caramelised balsamic vinegar that I came across at the shops a while ago.

Simply – olive oil, garlic and the balsamic vinegar, combined and used to coat some chicken tenderloins – before being grilled until cooked through.

Meanwhile – the salad – using some tomatoes that have been just divine recently.

All together now -

Grilled chicken, lettuce, cucumber and those beautifully sweet tomatoes.

Healthy, simple and delicious.

And the perfect end to a rather hot day indeed!

What about you? Are you a ‘heat’ person – or do you prefer the cooler weather?

  1. That looks divine! I'm obsessed with salads now. I just roasted a whole cauliflower to put in a salad later. It's definitely the weather for it!

  3. Definitely prefer the cold to the heat. At least when it's cold you can rug up and turn a heater on .. in the heat there's no way to keep cool and if you're out and about and you just end up sweaty and disgusting!
