Kiwi Chicken Salad

Ingredients
4 cup low sodium broth or water, to poach chicken

2 4-ounce boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1 lime, juiced

1 cup low fat plain yogurt (not vanilla)

1 tsp worcestershire sauce

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

3 kiwis, peeled and sliced

1 cup red grapes, halved

1 red bell pepper, julienned

1 head frisee, cleaned and torn

1/2 cup macadamia nuts, toasted

1 head radicchio, leaves torn apart

Although many people think of Hawaii when tasting buttery, sweet Macademia nuts, they are originally from Australia. Aboriginal tribes have been harvesting and eating the nuts for their healthy fats and protein. Kiwi fruit is also native to Australia, so this salad combines two superfruits from the land down under. Yogurt is a superfood loaded with flavor and beneficial probiotics that may boost immunity and improve digestion.
