Grilled Chicken Summer Salad
As the heat rises, our bodies often crave something light, refreshing, and nutritious. Our Summer Salad perfectly fits the bill, combining crunchy lettuce, vibrant veggies, and perfectly grilled chicken seasoned with Rouse’s Cajun seasoning. This salad is not just visually appealing; it's also a powerhouse of essential nutrients, making it an excellent choice for those following a healthy eating plan.
This salad serves well as a standalone meal due to its balanced content of protein, fiber, and healthy fats. You might also pair it with a bowl of chilled gazpacho or a slice of whole grain bread for a more filling meal. Finish off with a refreshing sugar-free iced tea or a glass of sparkling water with a twist of lemon.
1 cup Romaine lettuce, chopped
1 cup Iceberg lettuce, chopped
½ cup green bell pepper, thinly sliced
½ cup fresh tomatoes, wedged
¼ of a whole cucumber, sliced
2 grilled or baked chicken tenders
½ cup zucchini, chopped
½ cup squash, chopped
Rouse’s Cajun seasoning, to taste
For the Dressing:
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
Salt and pepper, to taste
In a large salad bowl, combine the Romaine and Iceberg lettuce. Toss together until well mixed.
Add the sliced bell pepper, tomato wedges, cucumber slices, chopped zucchini, and chopped squash to the bowl. Toss again to combine.
Season your chicken tenders with Rouse’s Cajun seasoning, and grill or bake until fully cooked. Once cooked, allow them to cool slightly and then slice into thin strips.
Add the sliced chicken tenders to the salad.
In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, apple cider vinegar, salt, and pepper to create the dressing. Drizzle this over the salad and toss gently until all ingredients are lightly coated.
Serve your fresh summer salad immediately, or refrigerate for up to 2 hours before serving to let the flavors meld together.
