Grilled Chicken Green Salad (shown with my Balsamic Vinaigrette)

The light and delicious salad shown above makes a complete meal.  I’ve eaten it both for lunch of dinner.   It’s one of my favorite ways sto use 1-2 pieces of leftover grilled chicken if that doesn’t go into a sandwich first.  I remembered I had a char-grilled chicken breast in my freezer and decided to thaw and slice it to have atop our salads.  We both love smoked meats, and to go on green salads……well hwo can you go wrong?  A very nice and easy meal, this one!   This salad can easily help you stay within your carb limits!  This salad is suitable for all phases of Atkins, Keto diets and Primal-Paleo consumption as well.
