Lipton Green Tea Superfruit Recipe: Iced "Arnold Palmer" and Chicken Pesto Salad


Recently, I was given the chance to try Lipton's new green tea with superfruit. Before I had even opened the tea package, I already had heard from word of mouth from my sister-in-law that the new superfruit teas were delicious (You know a tea is good when you are hearing about it before you even write the blog post!)
  
I sampled each one. The unique superfruit flavors were light and interesting. They are infused with antioxidant rich fruit flavors like purple acai and blueberry, red goji and raspberry, and white mangosteen and peach. The white mangosteen and peach was my favorite.


When I drink hot tea, I love to wrap my hands around the cup, savor the moment and sit awhile. But I also love it iced. One of my favorite ways to enjoy iced tea is paired with lemonade into an "Arnold Palmer" (named after the famous golfer).


Of course, tea is refreshing all by itself, but I was in the mood for a bite. So, to compliment my Iced Green Tea Arnold Palmer, I made Chicken Pesto Salad with red peppers. It’s not at all homemade, but it is super yummy.
 
Here's the Simple Chicken Pesto Salad recipe:
  • 1-3 breasts of grilled or baked chicken, cubed. (depending on how many you are making it for).
  • 1 small jar of your favorite pesto sauce.
  • Romaine lettuce
  • 1 red pepper, diced.
Directions:
  • Grill or bake chicken as desired, cut into small cubes.
  • Heat pesto sauce over the stovetop (or in the micro). While that's cooking,
  • Chop up your lettuce and dice your peppers.
  •  Toss the chicken in the warm pesto sauce and then combine with the lettuce and peppers, tossing it all together to coat. 
The dressing is extremely light, so you might want to add a little Olive Oil

Now that I have shared what I would pair with these refreshing Lipton Green Tea Superfruits, I want to know, how do you enjoy your tea?
