For the Salad (serves 1)

  • 1-2 cups Red butter lettuce, or favorite mixed greens (100- 150 g)
  • 1/2-1 Tbsp Good balsamic vinegar (15 g, I use a fruit infused from Baker and Olive)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup Grilled chicken, chopped (100 g)
  • 1/4 cup Cherry tomatoes, halved (30 g)
  • 1/4 cup Blueberries (30 g)
  • 2 Tbsp Green onions, chopped (10 g)
  • 2 tsp Feta cheese (I used a dairy-free) (10 g)
  • 2 tsp Toasted almonds, chopped (7 g)
  • 2 Tbsp Dairy-free herb pesto (30 g) recipe below
  • Fresh basil

Dairy-free Herb Pesto (serves 12)

  • 1 cup Cilantro (40 g)
  • 1 cup Parsley (30 g)
  • 1-2 cups Fresh basil (30 g)
  • 2/3 cup Dairy-free plain yogurt* (150 g)
  • 6 Tbsp White balsamic vinegar** (90 g)
  • 1/2 cup Toasted almonds (60 g)
  • 3 cloves Fresh garlic, or frozen cubes
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes
  • Pinch of Kosher salt and pepper



  • Make your dressing by adding all ingredients to a small blender or food processor and blend until pretty smooth. The nuts will leave it a little chunky– that’s good! But blend until it’s your preferred consistency.
  • Add salad greens to a large bowl and toss with vinegar and a pinch of salt and pepper. Top with chopped grilled chicken, cherry tomatoes, blueberries, green onions, feta, and toasted almonds.
  • Finish with a drizzle of herb pesto and some fresh basil. Toss and enjoy!


This salad is perfect when you want something extra light, but meal-quality rather than snack-quality! If you want to bulk it up a bit, EASY! Enjoy more chicken for added protein, or toss in your favorite grain for some carbs. I LOVE some brown rice or farro tossed in. Or of course, enjoy it with a nice hunk of crusty bread, or some salted and pan-heated pita bread.

Freshly Charred Corn and Peach Salad


  • 2 ears of corn (291g after sliced off)
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved (90 g)
  • 1 small peach, diced (mango and pineapple work great too!) (130 g)
  • 1 jalapeño, diced (25 g)
  • 1/2 cup green onions, chopped (20 g)
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped (25 g)
  • 3-4 radishes, chopped (35 g)
  • 1 Tbsp red wine vinegar (or a fruit-infused clear balsamic is delicious!)
  • 1 lime, juiced (15 g)
  • 1/2 Tbsp olive oil (7 g)
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • You can grill your corn using your favorite method. OR I like to cheat and simply char the outside of my corn over the open flame of my stove (carefully, with metal tongs.) If you want your corn more tender, cook it first. My preferred method is to microwave in the husk (or wrapped in a paper towel for four minutes. After it’s cooked, use your metal tongs to char it over the open flame of your stove.
  • Set the corn aside to cool while you get everything else chopped.
  • Slice your corn off the cob and add all ingredients to a large bowl.
  • Toss well and season to taste! Enjoy piled on top of any grilled protein, or simply tossed into greens, or as a dip with chips! This makes a perfect summer side.
