This salad is so refreshing and takes 10 minutes to make from start to finish. If you are serving it right away, you can skip the step of making the salad dressing in a jar and make it in the bottom of the salad bowl. Whisk well and add the rest of the ingredients.
If you make this salad at home, you will forever be disappointed with salads that you order from restaurants because you will know you can make it better. It is exhausting being amazing isn’t it?
You will not believe how quick you can pull this ridiculously summery and fancy dish together. You can prep everything the night before and just leave the grilling to ten minutes before you eat.
This dish is surprisingly filling, I figured 2 sweet potatoes per person, but if you are serving a lot of other things then figure ½ to 1 sweet potato per person.
You don’t have to remove the basil from its stems fully for this, you just throw it in and it tastes amazing! You can really use any kind of chicken for this recipe. If you don’t have shallots you can use a purple onion, it will be almost as good!
