Rainbow Grilled Chicken Salad

Grilled chicken salad is one of my favorite main dishes to serve in the warm months of the year.

When you make and blog about 9 staple salad dressing you should know how to make, you suddenly have a fridge full of dressing, which means you need to make some perfect salads to use up that dressing. That’s why we eat salad, right? To have a medium with which to eat salad dressing? This Rainbow Grilled Chicken Salad is a simple delicious meal that can be the host to just about any of the dressings I love. If you need a serving suggestion, I’d try this salad with the honey mustard, ranch, or blue cheese.

Grilled chicken salads are one of my favorite main dishes to serve in the warm months of the year. I don’t have to fire up my oven, which is nice, and it feels fresh and light. I will eat this as my main meal and serve it with some homemade macaroni and cheese or some simple no-knead bread for the kids. They like salad, but they like lots of carbs for dinner, too.

This is a great meal to prep head of time too! You can grill the chicken breast, make your veggie box, and store the chopped/washed lettuce in a mason jar. All you’ll have to do the day of is put it together. I love meal prepping! You could also turn all of this into a salad in a jar if you want to pack it somewhere or take it to the office for lunch.
