Romaine Salad with Chicken, Peaches & Mint

You may find yourself using this puréed apricot dressing and marinade for other salads as well. It’s fruity, minty, and very summery.

Tip: To toast almonds, spread on a baking sheet and bake at 350ºF until golden brown and fragrant, stirring once or twice (5-7 minutes).

Ingredients

  • Marinade & Dressing:

    • ½ cup dried apricots
    • ½ bunch mint
    • 1 tsp. orange zest
    • ½ cup orange juice
    • 2 Tbsp. honey
    • 4 tsp. Dijon mustard
    • 4 tsp. red wine vinegar
    • ½ tsp. salt
    • Pepper to taste
    • ¼ cup olive oil

    Salad:

    • 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast
    • 1 head romaine lettuce, chopped
    • 6 peaches, pitted and cut into wedges
    • ½ bunch mint, chopped
    • ½ cup slivered almonds, toasted

Directions

  1. Soak dried apricots in hot water for 10 minutes. Drain and place apricots in a food processor or blender. Add remaining marinade/dressing ingredients and process until smooth. Reserve 1 cup for the dressing.
  2. Transfer the remaining marinade to a large, sealable plastic bag. Add chicken, seal, and turn to coat. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes and up to 1 day. Discard marinade.
  3. Oil grill and preheat to medium-high. Grill marinated chicken until it reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165ºF (6-8 minutes per side).
  4. While chicken is cooking, combine remaining salad ingredients in a large bowl. Slice cooked chicken and add to salad. Toss with dressing to coat.
