Dinner Idea: Pickin' Tomatoes From Harvest Farm
Serves: 2
My go-to Chopped Caprese Salad:
  • 1 small container of Cherry Tomatoes (about 1.5 cups), chopped in half
  • 6-8 Basil Leaves (about ¼ cup), chopped
  • 1 clove Garlic, minced
  • 8 ounces Whole Milk Mozzarella, chopped into bite sized pieces
  • ½ cup Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. Olive Oil (I love using Greek Olive Oil in this recipe)
  • S + P, to taste
Grilled Chicken:
  • 2 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • 1 tbsp. Taco Seasoning
Sautéed Spinach & White Beans
  • 1 large bunch of Fresh Spinach (about 10 cups)
  • 1 (15-ounce) can Cannellini Beans, rinsed & drained
  • 3-4 Tbsp. Olive Oil, for sautéing
  • 2 cloves Garlic, minced
  • S + P, to taste
  • 1 tsp. Red Pepper Flakes, optional
  • ¼ cup Breadcrumbs or Crushed Crackers (we used Club Crackers)
  • 1 tbsp. Butter
  1. Prepare Caprese Salad: Chop all Vegetables and Mozzarella and place in a large mixing bowl. Gently toss with Balsamic Vinegar, Olive Oil and Salt + Pepper. Set aside until you're ready to plate.
  2. Season the Chicken with desired seasonings: I like to use Taco Seasoning but you can use whatever seasoning you prefer. Grill on medium-high for about 7 minutes on each side, or until internal temperature reaches 165F and juices run clear.
  3. While the Chicken is grilling, prepare the sautéed Greens: Heat Olive Oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat and add Garlic and Crushed Red Pepper. Sauté for 1 minute before adding the Spinach. In large handfuls, add Spinach in batches and mix constantly until wilted (about 10 minutes). Psst...Don't forget to flip your Chicken while cooking this!
  4. Rinse and drain the Cannellini Beans and add to the skillet: Continue to cook for another 4-5 minutes, or until beans are heated through.
  5. In a separate pan, melt the Butter and add Crushed Crackers: Sauté until the Crackers are golden, about 4 minutes.
  6. Assemble the plates: First lay down a bed of Spinach & Beans and sprinkle with crispy Crushed Crackers. Next add the Grilled Chicken Breast and top with Caprese Salad. Serve Immediately.
