Author Notes: I make tomato basil salad almost every day when tomatoes hit the farmer's market. It's a hard combo to beat, but this year i was looking for a way to change it up a bit. So I gave this a shot. I think the creaminess of the mozzarella is a nice foil for the tart plums. LizC

Serves 4

  • 4 boneless chicken breasts, slightly flattened
  • 4 Red plums, pitted and cut into 1 inch chunks
  • 0
  • 1 ball fresh mozzarella, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  1. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Brush with olive oil.
  2. Combine the plums, mozzarella, olive oil, balsamic and basil in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Let sit for 20-30 minutes.
  3. Grill the chicken.
  4. Serve the chicken with the plum and mozzarella salad spooned on top.
  5. To make this more of a meal, toss some arugula with lemon juice, olive oil and salt, and then place the chicken and plum salad on top.
