Grilled Chicken Salad

Bringing a tasty, healthy salad for lunch just got easier with STAR EVOO & Red Wine Vinegar Single-Serving Packs!  We like to grill several chicken breasts ahead of time and freeze or refrigerate them so that they can be used in lunches throughout the week.

Roasted Green Beans

Green beans are in season this month.  We tossed them in our STAR Butter Flavored Olive Oil before roasting to give them a butter flavor with all of the health benefits of olive oil!

Roasted Green Beans
1 pound green beans, trimmed
2 tablespoons STAR Butter Flavored Olive Oil
1 teaspoon Kosher Salt

Preheat oven to 450°F. Toss green beans with STAR Butter Flavored Olive Oil and salt on large rimmed baking sheet. Roast until browned and almost tender, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes. Continue roasting until beans are tender, about 2 minutes longer.
