This recipe series is brought to you by community news service COLlive and Kettle & Cord, the home essentials store in Crown Heights. Today we are joined by health coach Rivkah Krinsky who will demonstrate her healthy and delicious Grilled Peach Chicken Salad.
Here are some of Rivkah’s nutrition takeaways from this recipe:
Grill Your Food: Whenever clients ask me the healthiest way to prepare food, I always tell them to use the grill. Whether making food at home or ordering in a restaurant, grilled is always the best way to go.
Choose Your Greens: All greens are good greens, but the deeper the green the more the nutrients. So when you’re going green, go deep!
Peach Facts: Peaches are loaded with healthy nutrients. They have large amounts of fiber, potassium and vitamin C making them a healthy addition to your diet.
Crunch Time: If you’re already adding a crunch element to your dish, why not add a crunch loaded with nutrients! Pumpkin seeds are a great source of magnesium and taste delicious in salads too.

3 chicken cutlets
2 firm peaches (sliced)
