When the warmer weather arrives we often crave lighter dishes and this grilled salad hits the spot while delivering big flavours. The bitter chicory, salty feta, and sweet, hot and spicy pecans provide a great mix of taste and texture and elevate good old chicken thighs to something special. We can’t wait to scale this up to serve the whole family once we’re allowed!

Serves 4
