Deluxe Grilled Chicken Salad

Ok, so this isn't really a recipe, it's more of an idea. It's a great way to get in your veggies and protein. Most people think of salad as some wilted greens with gloopy dressing. But that shouldn't be the case! Use different types of greens, romaine, iceberg, baby spinach, arugula, butter lettuce, the possibilities are endless! Top with your choice of protein, chicken, steak, shrimp, hard boiled egg, etc. And then add fun goodies like crumbled bacon, avocado, cheese, cucumbers, bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, red onion, even some nuts or seeds if you're not on induction.

Obviously the carb count will depend on the ingredients you use. But get creative, use your imagination! This is one of the tastiest salads i've had. It has iceberg lettuce, grilled chicken, hard boiled egg, cucumbers, red onion, cheddar cheese, avocado, crumbled bacon, and cherry tomatoes. I ate it with ranch dressing. Yum!


  1. That looks gorgeous, and reminds me of the salads my English hubby's family makes - and that we've made - but without the carbier elements (e.g. potato salad). Definitely gonna be using this idea, thanks! :)`

  2. Thanks for the recipe!!! Love it

    btw, bird nest (www.geocities.jp/hongkong_bird_nest/index_e.htm) is made up of about 58% soluable proteins...the highest amoung all food and even synetic protein powders
