Balsamic Grilled Chicken Salad

Anna Sciancalepore Antoniello


Found this recipe in a American Profile insert in our newspaper. It was a big hit at a party my sister had.

I'm not generally a fan of mayonaise based salads but, this has to be my new favorite. Great flavor and definitely tastes better made a day before. Just add a little more mayo before serving if you feel it's a little dry. I think the dried cherries and chives really make this dish.

I'll be making this for the adults at my son's birthday party. Since it will be outside and I won't have access to electricity I thought this would be great. I'm just going to make sandwiches on kieser rolls and set them in a cooler for people to help themselves.

I hope you like this as much as I do. Enjoy!
