Nectarine Chicken Salad

(originally made 8/2011)

Picked up some amazing nectarines at the farm this week.   I really wanted something light, and this fit the bill perfectly.     I added blueberries, red onion and sliced cukes.     For the chicken, I used sliced panko-breaded boneless skinless breasts that I baked in the oven.        Definitely going straight to the favorites file!
