Meal of the Week: Grilled Chicken Salad

Need some fruits and veggies in your life? Try this salad with grilled chicken to get your vitamins and protein in the same tasty meal. I like to use a 50/50 mix of spring mix and baby spinach. The number of chicken breasts depends on how many people you’re cooking for (if I’m cooking for multiple people, I’ll give each person their own chicken breast and just mix the salad separately). Marinade the chicken in a low sodium salad dressing and grill. While the chicken is on the grill, mix your spring mix and spinach with a handful of chopped walnuts, dried cranberries, chopped apple, and top with feta cheese. You can garnish the salad like I did with some whole carrots, or chop and mix them in! It’s that easy. I like to use either Greek or balsamic vinaigrette for a dressing. Toss and top with chicken and you’re done!
