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.

Rainbow Grilled Chicken Salad
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?
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.
Is a Grilled Chicken Salad a main dish or side dish?
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.
Can I meal prep this salad ahead of time?
This is a great meal to prep head of time! 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.
