Since I ( me, Liz) have been juicing a meal or two these past few weeks, sometimes eating a crunchy, refreshing meal is a welcoming change to add to this healthy program. You just need to chew your food once in a while, know what I mean?So instead of juicing today, I was in the mood to make a fresh grilled chicken spinach salad with feta cheese. I had some grilled chicken (left over from last nights dinner), some fresh spinach and some vegetables on hand, making this salad so tasty.
If you don't have any grilled chicken, its relatively easy to take one or two thin chicken cutlets and grill them on stove top in a skillet, add one tablespoon of balsamic vinegar and saute until fully cooked. The balsamic flavors the cutlets without any seasonings. I prefer less sodium in my food anyway, but you can season the chicken to your liking.
The salad was very refreshing, crunchy and tasty! Great to serve for lunch or dinner. It turned out really delicious! We hope you enjoy!
