A note about serious food allergies
You've got the grill all ready for its yearly hibernation, but hold off: there's one more meal that deserves the charcoal and grates treatment before the summer is over. This chicken salad, which unlike 99.9% of the ones you consumed this summer, is calorie-conscious, carb-conscious, and 100% delicious. Chicken dusted with ranch flavor, combined with freshly grilled vegetables like asparagus and corn, and tossed with a herbaceous pesto dressing that adds the perfect finishing touch. The grill will be thanking you for having such a delicious end to its season.
Due to our just-in-time sourcing model, we may have to send you a
