Red-on-Red Chicken Salad with Feta-and-Honey Balsamic Drizzle

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan combine vinegar and honey. Bring to boiling over medium-high heat; reduce heat. Simmer for 7 to 8 minutes or until mixture is reduced by half, stirring frequently. Cool.
  2. Cut watermelon crosswise into 1-inch slices; remove the flesh from slices.* Cut flesh into 1/2-inch cubes (or use a small melon baller to make 3/4-inch balls) and place in an extra-large bowl. Add strawberries, chicken, red onion, basil, and cheese; mix very gently. Cover and chill about 45 minutes or until cold.
  3. To serve, divide the chicken mixture among chilled salad plates. Drizzle each serving with 1 tablespoon of the vinegar mixture. If desired, sprinkle with pecans.
