Chicken and Nectarine Salad


Chicken and Nectarine Salad

A quintessential summer salad – light, fresh and so very quick! White nectarines are my favourite but you could choose the yellow variety or a mix of both. For something different try using apricots or peaches.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 0 minutes
Total time: 10 minutes
