Balsamic Chicken Salad
This Balsamic Chicken Salad is a meal in itself. We add chopped apples, fresh greens, lentils, celery, parsley and ginger to complete the dish. It’s unique, healthy and elegant enough for company! Our Tip: Good balsamic vinegar is made from grapes, and to smoke out imposters, be sure to check the ingredient label and look for the words “aged grapes must” or “Mosto d’Uva”. The aged vinegar has a dark color and a slightly sweet and rich flavour, giving just the right zing to this GERD-friendly entree. Why we love this Balsamic Chicken Salad recipe? White meat like chicken is easier to digest and a recommended protein choice for GERD patients. Balsamic vinegar is rich in acetic acid that stimulates the secretion of gastric juices. It can also make your stomach produce less hydrochloric acid that will help to reduce the symptoms of acid reflux. Tinned lentils make a convenient, tasty and high-fibre addition to both vegetarian and meat-based recipes.
