Grilled Chicken Salad

Grilled Chicken Salad

 Perfectly grilled chicken, with fresh vegetables. Grilled chicken salad is perfect for lunch or a quick snack. 

I really enjoy salads. I usually add a ton of toppings on my salad but I was trying to keep it cute for this picture. Feel free to add your own toppings, whether it be corn, shredded cheese, avocado, etc. Before I transitioned to this healthier lifestyle I would drench my salad in ranch dressing. I was upset that I had to give up my ranch dressing until I found a healthier dressing in Walmart. Its yogurt dressing by Bolthouse Farms.
