How to make Char-Grilled Chicken + Cherry Tomato-Ginger Salad

This colourful dish isn't just nice to look at, it's totally easy! I used grape tomatoes instead of cherry tomatoes in the picture. I don't think there's a difference except that the grape tomatoes are smaller and cute. Next time I'd use more ginger, but you can vary the amount of each vegetable. I used mint leaves, but cilantro would also be nice (I didn't have any so I grabbed some mint leaves from the yard).

  • For the chicken

    1. Mix spices together and season chicken.
    2. Then brush with olive oil.
    3. Cook the chicken (skin down) on a hot grill until nicely charred.
    4. Turn chicken over and grill until cooked.
  • For the salad

    1. Put vegetables into a bowl and sprinkle with salt.
    2. In separate bowl, combine fresh lime juice and sugar to mix.
    3. To serve, place chicken on dish first.
    4. Add sweet lime dressing in the salad and arrange on top.

    aw thanks! all my recipes are so easy, i feel like i need to jazz it up to make it look cool, or something. I also worked for a furniture company and was in charge of accessories art direction. So I'll probably go a little overboard sometimes...

    I mean, i learnt a lot from the merchandisers. I didn't actually DO the setups. But I'm stealing their ideas now. muahaha.
