Grilled Chicken Salad with Garlic Scape Vinaigrette


 Garlic scapes are the flower bud of the garlic plant. The bud is removed in late June to encourage the bulbs to thicken up. Scapes taste just like garlic and can be used in exactly the same way as garlic in any recipe. They add such a wonderful depth of flavor to this vinaigrette!

1. Combine vinaigrette ingredients in a food processor or blender until smooth. Set aside. 



2. Combine spices in a small bowl, then rub over the chicken breasts. 


3. Preheat grill to medium-high and lightly oil the grate. Grill chicken for 5 minutes per side, or until juices run clear. Let rest 5 minutes, then dice. 


4. To assemble the salad, place the greens on a platter and top with chicken, pecans and bacon. Drizzle with vinaigrette and serve.
