Chicken, Tomato and Mozzarella Salad with Spicy Basil Dressing

  • SERVINGS: 6
  • FAST
  • HEALTHY

This recipe calls for part-skim-milk mozzarella, not only because it's lower in calories but also because it melts more slowly and holds its shape better than the fresh whole-milk kind.

  1. 1/3 cup minced red onion
  2. Extra-virgin olive oil
  3. 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  4. 1 large garlic clove, minced
  5. 1 jalapeño, seeded and minced
  6. 1/4 cup chopped basil
  7. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  8. 2 pints cherry tomatoes
  9. 6 ounces part-skim mozzarella cheese, cut into 3/4-inch cubes
  10. Six 5-ounce skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, pounded 1/4 inch thick
  1. Light a grill. In a small bowl, combine the onion with 3 tablespoons of olive oil, the vinegar, garlic, jalapeño and basil. Season the dressing with salt and pepper.
  2. Thread six 12-inch metal skewers with the tomatoes, alternating with the mozzarella after every 2 tomatoes. Brush the chicken with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Grill the chicken over a hot fire until just cooked through, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a platter. Grill the skewers over a hot fire, turning once, until the cheese is lightly charred and just starting to melt, 1 minute. Slide the tomatoes and cheese from the skewers onto the platter. Drizzle 2 tablespoons of the dressing over the chicken and pass the remaining dressing at the table.
