Broccoli and Peach Chicken Salad is always a huge hit over the weekends at our house. The various flavors works so well together and it is a super healthy recipe too.
I cook the Chicken in various ways, depending on how I feel that day – pan-fry in a non-stick pan, over the coals on the barbeque or I use my George Foreman grill, which I totally love by the way!
Using fresh Broccoli is of course the most important and the blanching only takes a couple of minutes – dump the Florets into lightly salted boiling water, boil for 3 – 5 minutes, drain and immediately place in a bowl with ice-cold water for a minute or two, drain again and the Broccoli is ready.
If your are looking for a delicious, refreshing lunch or light dinner, do try this Broccoli and Peach Chicken Salad. It is quick, easy and no strange ingredients – best of all, kids love this salad and even finish the Broccoli.
Oh, yes and you can make the salad hours in advance, store sealed in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve.
The dressing is quite simple and not a huge quantity, but the Peaches add so much juiciness, there really is no need to cover the salad in dressing.
