I am loving the sunshine and longer days. Waking up in this gorgeous weather puts a big smile on my face. Fresh Gourmet, number one brand of croutons and toppings in the US, has now launched in the UK and it is trying to get everyone experimenting with salads this summer.
I was sent a selection of the new Fresh Gourmet range, which consists of three delicious crouton flavours – Basil Pesto, Cheese & Garlic and Cracked Black Pepper – and plus crunchy Crispy Onions.
I created a Chicken and Sweet Potato Summer Salad with Cheese & Garlic Fresh Gourmet Croutons and it was very tasty! The croutons added flavour and texture to the salad.
Chicken and Sweet Potato Summer Salad Recipe
- Mixed Salad Leaves
- Sliced Red and Yellow Peppers
- Sliced Courgettes
- Chicken Breast
- Sliced Gammon
- Sweet Potato Chunks
- Cheese & Garlic Fresh Gourmet Croutons
- Dressing: Olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper
Heat oven at 180C, Grill the chicken breast until juices run clear. Roast the vegetables, red peppers, yellow peppers, courgette and sweet potato on a lightly oiled baking tray, roast until tender.
Prepare the dressing by adding olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Season to taste.
In a large bowl, toss the warm roasted vegetables mixture with the salad leaves, Cheese & Garlic Fresh Gourmet Croutons and dressing. Serve with the chicken breast. Enjoy!
I didn’t add any measurements to the ingredients as you can add as much or as little of each as you wish. I really enjoyed how the sweetness of the roasted vegetables tasted with the cheesy croutons. I will be making this salad again!
