Description

This salad is so pretty, and delicious too! It's the perfect summer salad for pot-lucks, summer BBQ's and get-togethers. Loads of sliced peppers, every color of the rainbow, are tossed with grilled chicken, sliced red onions, tomatoes, olives, and basil, along with a smooth, Italian balsamic based vinaigrette. The salad needs to sit at room temperature for a bit, before serving, so it's the perfect make-ahead dish for a big party! For more great summer meal ideas, check out www.chewnibblenosh.com !

Preparation

Core, seed, and thinly slice all of the peppers and chiles. Heat a gas or charcoal grill to medium heat. Lightly brush the chicken with olive oil and sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper. Grill the chicken on one side for 4-5 minutes, flip and grill for 3-4 minutes more until done. Let cool and cut the chicken on the diagonal into thin slices. Put the chicken in a large bowl along with the sliced peppers, chiles, and onion.

Whisk together the two vinegars, garlic, crushed red pepper flakes, and 1/4 cup olive oil. Toss the vinaigrette with the chicken and peppers and let stand for 30 minutes to an hour. Add the tomatoes, olives, and basil. Gently toss, season to taste with salt and pepper, and let stand at least another 15 minutes before serving.
