The watermelon around here has been amazing lately and super affordable, which is always a nice bonus. Almost daily I have been throwing it into the blender along with some fresh mint or basil for a refreshing afternoon treat. I have also been adding it to just about every salad I make. This simple salad with spiced chicken and smoky charred corn pairs perfectly with the sweet watermelon and makes a great end of summer meal. In terms of dressing, I love it with this simple homemade balsamic glaze but you could add any dressing you like. I also wouldn’t judge if you decided to add some nice crumbled feta, goat cheese, or fresh mozzarella.

Instructions

1

Bring the balsamic vinegar to a simmer on the stove and let reduce for 15-20 minutes until it is nice and thick. This will serve as the dressing.

2

Meanwhile combine the paprika, cumin, chile powder, salt, pepper, and cinnamon. Rub onto the chicken on both sides.

3

Heat a skillet over medium high heat. Add the oil. Once hot, add the chicken and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side until seared and cooked through. Set aside.

4

Add the corn to the same skillet in one layer. Let cook for about 1 minute until beginning to brown and toss. Cook for another 1-2 minutes until browned and just tender.

5

Toss together all the remaining ingredients. Top with corn, chicken, and balsamic glaze.
