As far as I’m concerned, April through September is salad season. The rest of the year I love to eat hearty comfort foods and slow cooked meals.

Yet, right now is the perfect time for fresh summer produce, and I plan to make the most of it.

With that in mind, it can be fun (and tasty) to find ways to combine the comfort of cold weather dishes with warm weather ingredients.

How To Make Thai Red Curry Grilled Chicken Salad

This healthy Thai chicken salad starts with chicken breasts marinaded in Panang red curry paste. You can find the curry paste in Asian markets, but also in a regular grocery store with a great “International” section.

Curry paste is so intense you do not need to marinade the chicken for long, and you do not need to add additional salt.

As you grill the chicken, the curry paste creates a rich red crust on the exterior of the chicken. It provides not only flavor, but an appealing texture as well.

Next make a quick creamy peanut dressing by pureeing peanut butter with sesame oil, rice vinegar, and garlic.
