Sometimes, you just want a light, delicious meal. If you are tired of the standard meat and potatoes, then you must try this delicious summer salad. Of course, it would compliment a chicken dinner with roasted redskin potatoes nicely, but it can definitely stand alone as the main dish.
Utilizing salads as a main dish can also help shrink your waistline a bit too…. a side-effect that I can totally appreciate!
One of the things that I love about making entrée salads is that you don’t need to measure anything exactly, you can just toss in any amount of anything that you like in, and it takes almost no time to prepare, especially if you make this salad without the grilled chicken.
- Mixed Greens (any type of lettuce that you like will work!)
- Mango, diced
- Shallot, finely chopped
- Feta Cheese
- Boiled Eggs, chopped
- Avocado, diced
- Dried Cranberries
- Almonds, Pecans, or Walnuts
- Grilled Chicken
Top with the salad dressing of your choice. I usually like a vinaigrette or low-fat poppy seed dressing to keep the salad on the light side.
So before summer totally winds down, make one of these fresh, delicious salads for dinner. Pair it with a glass of white wine. Eat dinner outside on your deck. And enjoy these beautiful summer nights before they are gone….
