I like to add grilled chicken to salads. I season boneless skinless chicken breasts with different flavors of Mrs. Dash and grill them. I divide the breasts into 3 ounce servings and freeze in ziploc bags, labeling with seasoning flavor. I usually use romaine lettuce and various vegetables; I don't like salad dressing so I use salsa instead and add a serving of shredded cheese on top.
