Zucchini and Chicken Salad


¼ cup plus 1 tablespoon olive oil

¼ cup fresh lemon juice

Coarse salt and fresh ground pepper

1 ¼ pounds zucchini, thinly sliced

1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast halves

1 bunch (8 oz.) spinach, chopped

½ red onion, thinly sliced

¾ cup chopped pecans

¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese

¼ cup chopped fresh mint


In a large bowl, whisk together ¼ cup of the olive oil, the lemon juice, and salt and pepper to taste. Add the zucchini; toss to coat, and let marinate while cooking the chicken.

In a large nonstick skillet, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Cook until golden brown on both sides, about 7 minutes per side. Remove from the skillet, and slice thin.

Toss the chicken with the zucchini mixture, spinach, red onion, pecans, Parmesan cheese, and mint. Serve.
