I decided to try my hand at a chicken salad earlier this week. I wanted to give it a salsa flavor, but I also wanted to keep it low fat so I could serve it to my Meltdown team. So here was my solution:

First I took three boneless chicken breasts and rubbed some Hell on the Red salsa on them and put them on the grill. While those were cooking, I mixed a pre-packaged salad bag from H.E.B. with some baby spinach and drained black beans. I also threw in a handfull of chopped green onions. Then I tossed it all together.

When the chicken was done I sliced it into bite-sized chunks and put it on top of the salad. I took it into work and everyone seemed to like it. I had two choices of salsa, as well as a fat-free ranch dressing to pour on top.

How do you like your salad?
