Chargrilled Chicken & Snowpea Salad

Another low fat dish, this dish gets its wow flavour from the orange and pinenut combination. Watercress is such a rich source of vitamin C and in my opinion should be added to every salad to boost good health.

Ingredients

  • 100 grams snowpeas
  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • 2 cups watercress, washed and trimmed
  • 2 tbsp pinenuts
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 orange, finely sliced; reserve any of the orange juice from slicing
  • 2 large organic chicken fillets

Preparation

Destring and blanch the snowpeas by immersing them in boiling water for 30 seconds before draining. Cut them into thin slivers. Brush the asparagus with olive oil and chargrill for 2 minutes. Arrange the greens and sliced orange on a serving platter. Dry roast the pinenuts and set aside. Combine the olive oil with the white balsamic and pour the dressing over the salad and top with pinenuts.

Method

Brush the chicken with olive oil and the reserved orange juice and grill for 15 minutes until cooked through. Serve slices of chicken over the salad.
