Blanched Broccoli Salad with Chicken

Recipe Ingredients for Blanched Broccoli Salad

1 lb. Broccoli
1 clove garlic
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
5 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
2 oz slivered almonds
1/2 cup crumbled Feta cheese
16 oz. Tyson 100% Natural Chicken Breast

Recipe Directions for Blanched Broccoli Salad

  1. Trim broccoli into same-size flowerets; then blanch for exactly 3 minutes in boiling water and pour into colander to drain.

  2. Mash together the garlic clove and salt, then add the red wine vinegar and hot pepper flakes and let it sit for 10 minutes.

  3. Crumble enough Feta to make 1/2 - 3/4 cup.

  4. Heat 1 T olive oil in a frying pan, add almonds and fry until the almonds are golden brown. (Watch them carefully; this only takes 2-3 minutes and they can get too brown rather quickly if you're not careful.)

  5. Drain the fried almonds on paper towels. (You can season them with salt if you want to, but I didn't)

  6. Whisk the olive oil into the vinegar-garlic mixture to make the dressing.

  7. Stir together the broccoli, feta, and half the almonds and toss with the dressing. Serve salad right away, sprinkling the rest of the almonds on top.
