¼ cup white-wine vinegar, plus more for drizzling

¼ cup water

1 teaspoon turbinado sugar

2 garlic cloves, crushed

Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

1 cucumber, peeled and diced

5 radishes, very thinly sliced

8 ounces organic cherry tomatoes, halved

1 small red onion, finely diced

Canola or safflower oil, for grill

6 boneless, skinless hormone & antibiotic free chicken breast halves (4 to 5 oz each)

8.  Spoon relish on top of chicken and garnish with mint leaves.
