A yummy salad I had this weekend.

Grilled Peach and Chicken Salad

1/3 cup plain non-fat yogurt
1 tbsp fresh lime juice
1 tbsp peach juice
1 tbsp snipped fresh mint leaves
1/8 tsp salt

1 tsp vegetable oil
1 garlic clove, pressed
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
salt and coarsely ground black pepper
2 large peaches, pitted and cut into wedges
1 cup lightly pressed watercress leaves (this is what the recipe calls for. The leaves in the salad I had were just mixed baby greens)
1/4 cup toasted chopped pecans

*For dressing, whisk ingredients in a bowl until well blended then refrigerate until ready for use.

*Combine oil and garlic then brush over the chicken. Season with salt and black pepper. Grill chicken. When done cut chicken into bite sized pieces.

*place peach wedges on lightly greased grid of grill. Grill covered for 2-3 minutes turning once when grill marks appear.

*Place chicken and peaches into mixing bowl, adding the dressing and mix gently. Cover and refrigerate about 2 hours or until chilled.

*To serve, add watercress to chicken mixture, tossing lightly. Sprinkle with pecans.

*Make lots of yummy noises.

I got it from a friend but I think she got it from Pampered Chef.
