This light, super-refreshing salad will be a welcome addition to summer meals. It tastes best when made just before serving.

Pineapple

1¼ cup(s), fresh, cut into chunks

Uncooked jicama

1 cup(s), cut into short thin sticks

Cilantro

cup(s), fresh, coarsely chopped

Sweet red pepper(s)

¼ cup(s), very thinly sliced

Uncooked scallion(s)

¼ cup(s), sliced

Instructions

Notes

If you want to grill fresh chicken for this recipe, heat an outdoor grill or stove-top grill pan. Coat two 6-ounce boneless, skinless chicken breasts with cooking spray and sprinkle them with 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Grill, turning once, until cooked through, about 10 to 12 minutes. Let rest 5 minutes before cutting into chunks. Black beans would make a tasty addition to this recipe (could affect SmartPoints® values).
