Grilled chicken salad

Usually every Friday we have a big dinner, and it seemed like we were going to have it today, but then it started raining cats and dogs and my brother and his kids decided not to come. Since there was no need to prepare a big, lavish dinner I decided to make something light, colorful and healthy, as much as it could be.

I’m a big fan of salads, and a dinner served in my home doesn’t come without a fresh bowl of either lettuce, or coleslaw, or maybe even lamb’s lettuce. One of my favourite salads is Grilled chicken salad, where I can use any combination of vegetables with a fresh dressing on top.

Do you have any favourite salad? Share your ideas so I can give them a try!
