Grilled Chicken Salad for Two

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by A Messy Cook

This healthy, flavorful, and colorful recipe is from Light and Tasty’s April/May 2005 issue. Grilled chicken, tomato, dried cranberries, walnuts, cheddar cheese, olives, green onions…served over fresh salad greens, this sounds like a truly gourmet meal for two! I haven’t tried it yet, but the unique combination of ingredients sounds great.

I made this for my husband and I for supper tonight and it was delicious. I used half fat cheddar and also low fat Italian dressing to cut back on the calories some. I sprinkled the chicken with garlic italian seasoning before grilling it in a pan I had sprayed with low fat cooking spray. I used a mixture of dried cranberries and dried cherries. We both really enjoyed this! It was real pretty as well. Thanks so much!
