Grilled Chicken Salad

We love salads here at the Cottage and this one is a favorite.

It's so easy.  I grill chicken tenderloins (or I cook them on the stove), make up a salad of whatever you like or that you have on hand, voilà!  Dinner is served!




 Tonight I added red onion, home grown grape tomatoes, sweet peppers, cheddar cheese to the salad.



I sliced the chicken and put it on top of the salad and added my favorite thing about summer!


 But just a few, because they are high in natural sugar!


 Then I drizzled some of our homemade ranch dressing.
It was so good!  

Here is how I season my chicken - 

If I am grilling it I make a marinade of:

Red wine vinegar
mild tasting oil (I use mild tasting olive or coconut oil)
garlic powder
onion powder
chili powder
salt
pepper 
oregano

I just mix it up to taste.

If I cook it on the stove I put either oil in the pan or some butter
then I season it with the same ingredients as above though I usually don't add the oregano.

If you give it a try let me know how you like it.
