Chicken-Berry Salad
Ingredients
  • 1/2  cup  fresh orange juice
  • 1/4  cup  fresh lime juice
  • 1/4  cup  fresh lemon juice
  • 1  tablespoon  extra virgin olive oil
  • 1  teaspoon  chopped fresh basil
  • 3/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/2  teaspoon  ground black pepper
  • 4  medium  skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (1-1/4 to 1-1/2 lb. total)
  • 3  cups  fresh blackberries
  • 1/4  cup  red wine vinegar
  • 3  tablespoons  sugar
  • 1  teaspoon  Dijon-style mustard
  • 1/4  teaspoon  dried oregano, crushed
  • 1/2  cup  extra virgin olive oil
  • 1  ounce  Mediterranean mixed salad greens
  • 2  medium  pears, cored and thinly sliced
  • 3/4  cup  crumbled feta cheese (3 oz.)
Directions

1. In small bowl stir together orange, lime, and lemon juices, 1 tablespoon oil, basil, 1/2 teaspoon of the salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Place chicken in resealable plastic bag set in large bowl. Pour juice mixture over chicken; seal bag. Refrigerate 1 to 4 hours, turning bag occasionally.

2. For dressing, in blender combine 1 cup of the blackberries, vinegar, sugar, mustard, oregano, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Cover and blend until smooth. With blender running, slowly add 1/2 cup oil in a thin steady stream until well combined. Transfer to serving container. Cover and refrigerate until serving time.

3. Drain chicken, discarding marinade. For charcoal grill, place chicken on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals. Grill for 12 to 15 minutes or until done (170 degrees F.), turning once. (For gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Add chicken to grill rack. Cover and grill as above.)

4. Slice chicken. Divide greens among 4 serving plates. Top with chicken, pears, and remaining 2 cups berries. Top each with some of the dressing and feta cheese. Pass remaining dressing. Makes 4 servings.
