Apple and Pecan salad with Greek yogurt and Orange Ginger grilled Chicken


We went Apple picking ....YEY.....It totally made sense to drive 100 miles to pick up a few lbs of apples and pears ...The entire trip was wonderful....From me driving for the first time in the US TO Bhavye climbing on Mohit's shoulders to pick the fruits TO having a delicious meal at the farm 's barbecue TO coming back home after stopping at the outlet center for some shopping, everything made the day  just perfect.....Now the difficult part is to put these fruits to good use...I am not very fond of eating fruits on their own and neither is Bhavye.....So decided to make this wonderful and light salad for today's lunch.....IThis is one of the best salads I've ever had....The greek yogurt dressing was very light and refreshing.....If you are a vegetarian , go ahead with only the salad...So here is the recipe



All you need is

For Orange Ginger Grilled Chicken

  • Chicken breast-2
  • Fresh orange juice-1\2 cup
  • Soy sauce-1 tbsp
  • Rice vinegar- 1 tbsp
  • Black pepper powder-1\4 tsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Olive oil-2 tbsp


For the salad

  • Romaine lettuce-250 gms
  • Apples-2 ( cut into small pieces )
  • Pecans ( or walnuts )-1\2 cup
  • Greek yogurt ( or hung curd )-1 cup
  • Salt to taste
  • Black pepper -1\8 tsp




Method of preparation

Add all the ingredients for grilled chicken in a zip lock bag and refrigerate for 4-6 hours
Remove chicken from the bag and discard the liquid
Grill until browned from both the sides and cooked
If you don't have a grill, you can cook it in a pan over the heat with little oil
Cut into small pieces
Roast the pecans and chop them into small pieces
Mix all the ingredients for salad in a bowl
Top with grilled chicken
Serve immediately
