      • 1 Clove Garlic
      • 1 Teaspoon Dried Oregano
      • 1 Teaspoon Dried Basil

      • 2 Teaspoons Olive Oil

Directions

  1. For the vinaigrette: blend sherry vinegar with garlic clove, oregano and basil in a blender until smooth. Open the smaller lid of the blender while the machine is still running and pour half cup of Extra Virgin oil gradually into the blender. Blend until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to your taste.
  2. Preheat the grill.
  3. Lightly rub chicken breast with 2 teaspoons of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill the chicken breasts until still juicy but cooked through. Leave to cool a little and then slice.
  4. For the salad: take chicken slices in a large salad bowl. Add in gorgonzola, grapes, cranberries, pecans, croutons and artichokes. Toss in half of the vinaigrette and mix to combine. Serve salad with rest of the vinaigrette.
