Low Carb Salads: Grilled Chicken Salad

This salad is beyond simple, but also delicious. You probably already make it, but I thought I'd put the recipe up for anyone who doesn't know about the miracle of using Italian salad dressing to marinate meat.

Plus, I love the pic of this salad. So pretty!

  • Chicken
  • Italian salad dressing
  • Lettuce and veggies for salad

Tip: Grill some extra chicken so you have leftovers for lunch the next day.


1.Marinate chicken in Italian Salad Dressing (generic brand costs about $1.20) overnight or for at least 6 hours.

2.Grill chicken.

3.Serve atop fresh greens with your choice of low carb salad dressing.

Note there's no cheese in this recipe. Which is nice. Because sometimes low carb salads rely too heavily on cheese for flavor. In this salad, all the flavor comes from the marinade.
