Are you a “Salad for Dinner” kind of person? I know some people are opposed to the whole idea. 🙂 We love them around here, especially during the warmer months when cooking in the oven makes the house too hot. I realize, that your calendar says September and that many of you are experiencing cooler temps already…but we here in Utah are still having plenty of sunny days and I thought it fitting to share one more light and fresh meal that makes use of the grill.
This great main course salad not only includes fabulous grilled chicken, but is loaded with super nutritious quinoa. Pair those two with crunchy cabbage, shredded carrots, salted peanuts and a killer sweet and savory dressing and you are sitting on my new favorite main course salad, ever. Now, don’t be overwhelmed by the list of ingredients here. It comes together quickly. The chicken only needs to marinade for 1 hour and you can easily cook the quinoa and make the dressing while the chicken cooks on the grill. My family loved it and asked for it again. (Thank goodness!) Can’t wait to taste it again myself! It’s super good guys.
Hope some of you get a chance to try it!
Don’t leave out the quinoa. It adds a great, grainy texture. 🙂
