Sweet succulent cherries, roasted chicken, salty prosciutto, and delicate goat cheese combined in this Cherry Chicken Prosciutto Salad. The refreshing dressing with mixed berries, herbs, and whiskey, makes this summer plate complete.
This recipe was originally published in August 2018. I have taken and uploaded new images and slightly improved the recipe, but the blogpost itself remains the same.
Cherry Chicken Prosciutto Salad
Hello, my friends. I hope you are doing well. Well, I have heard that many parts of North America and Europe have been badly affected by heatwaves. I hope this refreshing and delicious salad might help to cool you down a bit.
Fun fact. This salad could have been named Cherry Peach Chicken Prosciutto Salad. However, when I finished photographing it, I realized I had forgotten to put peaches. You know that peaches must be the key ingredient in a cherry peach salad. At least I didn’t forget to add the whiskey in that dressing!
Sad fact. It’s been unbearably hot here for over the week. We don’t expect any changes for a while. There was a little relief yesterday, but then “Boom!”, and here we go again. Can I please hibernate until September (I will regularly wake up to absorb more ice cream)?
Also, I’ve been a bad food blogger. While I manage (somehow!) my blog posts twice per week, I haven’t been strong enough to visit most of your new (amazing!) recipes for a couple of days. I open the Bloglovin’ app every night, glance, and…close it hoping that there would be not so unbearably hot next time. But I have a feeling that you have felt the same way lately, haven’t you?
Brain status: dormant!
I am going to be strong and visit at least one or two blogs every day, though. Also, next week I’m posting the only one recipe as it’s awesome, and it deserves to be the star for the entire week. Thus, I will have more time to catch up with reading. Just don’t post every day, please :)
This Cherry Chicken Prosciutto Salad with a luscious boozy berry whiskey dressing is a delicious way to farewell the cherry season. While you can still find some decent cherries in Nova Scotia, their cost is far from being decent. So I believe, I am wrapping up my cherry season this year. That’s all right, though. I am excited about the watermelon season, and they’re still plenty of seasonal stone fruit. And ice cream. Watermelons, light salads, and ice cream are my methods to survive.
How do you fight this heat?
Have you ever forgotten to put an ingredient you originally planned to add?
Cheers for now.
