Description

Inspired by a yummy salad I enjoyed recently, this flavor combination is cool, crisp, and divine.

Ingredients

  • 4 whole Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • Olive Oil, For Drizzling
  • 3 stalks Celery (inner Light Green Stalks), Finely Diced
  • 2 ears Fresh Corn
  • ¼ whole Medium Red Onion, Finely Diced
  • 1-½ cup Blueberries
  • 3 Tablespoons Fresh Dill, Minced
  • 4 Tablespoons Mayonnaise
  • 4 Tablespoons Sour Cream
  • ¼ cups Half-and-half
  • 1 whole Lemon
  • 1 teaspoon Sugar (more To Taste)
  • Salt And Pepper (additional) To Taste
  • ¾ cups Crumbled Feta

Preparation

Place chicken breasts into large plastic storage bag. Pound with a mallet or rolling pin to flatten to 1/4 inch uniform thickness. Season chicken with salt and pepper.

Heat grill and drizzle chicken with olive oil. Grill chicken on both sides until done, about 7 minutes per side. (Rotate halfway during grilling each side to ensure pretty grill marks.) Remove from pan. Allow to cool.

With a very sharp knife, shave kernels off each corn cob. Combine with the onion and celery. Set aside.

Mix together mayonnaise, sour cream, feta, and half-and-half. Stir in sugar, squeeze in lemon juice, and add salt and pepper. Stir, then taste. Add more salt if necessary; do not undersalt!

Slice chicken on the bias to create flat, randomly shaped pieces. Throw into a bowl with celery, onion, and corn. Stir to combine. Pour half the dressing over the ingredients and toss gently. Add more as desired, but don’t overcoat the salad; should be light!

At the end, toss in the blueberries to lightly coat them in the dressing. Serve, then sprinkle individual helpings with feta.

This is really yummy. It is better the next day or after sitting for a while. Make in the AM and eat in the evening. I left out the feta because I am not a huge fan, added in gorgonzola and it was FAB!

Left a review but just wanted to point out that I think the directions in the printed recipe do not mention the dill. I added it to the dressing, but next time I will add to the celery/onion/corn mixture. Since I did not use all of the dressing, I figure I was shorted some dill.

I was looking for something light and fun to feed my parents when they come to visit for my sons high school graduation. They fly in late and will need a little something to munch on. Perfect!!!

This salad has it all – sweet, salty, creamy, crunchy. I’m not a lover of dill, but I’m still trying it. I may substitute a little Italian parsley or mint instead. Can’t wait!

I was tired of the same old, same old chicken salad, so this was a FANTABULOUS alternative! It was a bit tangy & unlike anything I’ve had before. I will definitely make it again.
