  • Sprinkle chicken with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and the cayenne. Grill chicken until cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Place 4 grilled scallions on each plate, and top with chicken.

This might sound really weird, but I added a tiiinnnyyy bit of whipped cream to the blueberry salsa. Also I made it the night before and kept it in the fridge. Super tasty meal!
