Steamed Chicken, Grapes and Walnut Salad

Serves 6 Prep Time 5 minutes   Cook Time 20 minutes   Rated:

We love our salads all year round, but this one is more of a summer salad, even a Christmas time salad as it uses grapes which are seasonal through summer of course. We used to shred the chicken for this, but I do love it steamed, seared then diced. It just seems a bit more elegant, perfectly moist for chicken breast in particular and of course, looks pretty as well. You will be surprised how many this salad can feed, and can be added to on demand of course.

I hope you love it too!
