Foodie Friday - Grilled Chicken Salad

Hosted by
I love salads! I remember one year as a preteen where all I ever wanted were salads. We had a foreign exchange student one summer. My mom, sisters, the exchange student and I took a weekend trip up to Quebec. Every where we went I ordered a salad.
It's no wonder than that when I'm pregnant I tend to crave salads and fresh fruit and veggies. After this last pregnancy I'm determined to continue eating healthier.
Would you believe I've never created my own salad before?  I tend to use recipes for just about everything. Well this week I decided, salads really don't need a recipe to make. So I created this Grilled Chicken Salad using items I had in my pantry.

Grilled Chicken Salad
1/2 head of Iceberg lettuce, torn into chunks
4 medium carrots, sliced
Asian Noodles
2 Oranges, peeled and sectioned
Grilled Chicken (I used a precooked frozen grilled chicken)
Thousand Island Dressins
Assemble the ingredients in 4 salad bowls. Serve and Enjoy!

  1. Thanks for sharing this! I'm on a fitness streak recently and I have been eating mostly salads and vegetables for the past weeks. I always follow recipes because I'm not very good in the kitchen department. ;)

  2. So funny about you and salads. I've always been the opposite other than a greens salad with dinner (my mother trained us to eat one) I never liked eating cold food also I've always been lousy at making dressings. Lately because I've really been following the recipes I've made much better salads.
