On hot summer days, I enjoy eating cool salads with grilled meat as a light meal and this Peruvian inspired grilled chicken salad is an amazing meal! The salad is a simple mix of lettuce, bell peppers, cucumber, tomatoes, onions and olives. The grilled chicken is marinated in a Peruvian style marinade and the dressing is a super tasty aji verde (Peruvian green sauce)! The smoky grilled chicken, cool and crunchy salad are simply amazing in the creamy, bright and fresh cilantro dressing!
Grill the chicken ahead of time and the salad only takes a few minutes to throw together! It’s great either when the chicken is still hot from the grill or when it’s cooled!
