I served this fabulous salad at a shower, and received many compliments. The vinaigrette pairs wonderfully with the grilled chicken and Brie, and the nuts offer a fun crunch. —Janet Duran of Des Moines, Washington


  • 5 boneless skinless chicken breast (4 ounces each)

  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
