A wonderful recipe to celebrate summer fruit. We love recipes that are quick and simple and what a great use of left over rotisserie chicken. The orange ginger dressing is delightfully refreshing!
1/2 Tsp freshly grated orange zest
1/4 cup orange juice
4 Tsp olive oil
1 Tbsp minced spring onions
1-2 Tsp minced peeled fresh ginger
1/4 Tsp minced garlic
Salt & freshly ground pepper, to taste
Whisk orange zest, orange juice, oil, spring onions, ginger, garlic, salt and pepper in a small bowl until well blended. (Alternatively, combine ingredients in a small jar, secure the lid and shake until blended.)
2 cups shredded skinless boneless rotisserie chicken breast
2 cups sliced peeled fresh peaches
½ cup sliced red onion
¼ cup chopped hazelnuts
150 g salad greens
½ cup crumbled goat cheese or feta cheese
Fresh ground pepper
Combine chicken, peaches, onion, and salad greens in a large bowl. Add dressing and toss gently. Serve sprinkled with goat cheese, hazelnuts and top with fresh ground black pepper.
- If fresh peaches are not in season, substitute with orange segments.
- Freshly roasting hazelnuts greatly enhances the flavour – just dry toast in the oven and rub in a clean tea towel to remove the skins.
- If you love garlic and citrus add more to the dressing – even more ginger – this salad can easily handle the extra flavour and not dominate the end result.
