One of my favorite shortcuts is Cooked Perfect Fire Grilled Chicken. It makes dinner time a snap! There are so many great flavor varieties, something to please everyone. Cooked Perfect Fire Grilled Chicken is grilled over an open fire to sear in the flavor, giving you juicy, tender chicken.

I am a total lemon fanatic, lately, I just can’t get enough of it. The Lemon Parsley Angel Hair with Asparagus and Mushrooms has been on repeat for lunch. So I knew the Lemon Herb Fire Grilled Chicken was going to be a hit.
We have started planting our garden and it has me craving fresh vegetables like crazy. We have planted green beans, onions, lettuce, tomatoes, peppers, carrots and broccoli. I’m so excited to have our own garden fresh broccoli. This Broccoli Pineapple Salad is going to be perfect for our crazy summer schedule. It’s perfect to make ahead and goes so good with the Cooked Perfect Lemon Herb Fire Grilled Chicken.
My mom made broccoli and cauliflower salad when I was growing up but I think it had more of a savory dressing. I made a few changes to the traditional broccoli salad and it is my new favorite! I added orange juice to sweeten the dressing and it’s just right, not overpoweringly sweet. I just happened to have a pineapple sitting on the cabinet that was ripe and ready and decided it would be a fun addition in place of the traditional grapes. You can totally enjoy the Broccoli Pineapple Salad right away but it gets even better after refrigerating for a few hours. A great dish to have on hand for busy schedules.
