Grilled Chicken Salad Recipe

The flavors of this salad are unexpected, but absolutely incredible together. The garden-fresh bite of berries goes beautifully with the tangy, lime-kissed flavor of a creamy salad dressing.  A smidgen of home-carmelized walnuts adds crunch, and boy, oh boy. Are you going to like the melding of textures and tastes. Absolutely delicious.

Grilled Chicken Salad Dressing

Berries can be expensive, so look for a package of mixed berries, often available in the refrigerated produce section of your local grocery store. It's often easy to find a package of cleaned, mixed berries at a savings from what you'd spend if you were to purchase a pint of each of the berries called for in this recipe.

Now, what are you waiting for? It's time to mix up some tasty salad greens, grilled chicken, and general awesomeness.  Yumminess awaits!
