Ingredients

    SALAD

    5 ounce organic chicken breast
    1 teaspoon olive oil
    2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning (Penzey's Spice, preferred)
    1/2 cup diced celery
    1/2 cup diced English cucumber, seeded
    1/4 cup diced green onion (about 2)
    1/4 cup diced green pepper
    1/4 cup sliced radish
    1/4 cup baby spinach, washed and dried
    1 cup chopped romaine lettuce
    4 tablespoons Italian Dressing (recipe below)

    DRESSING

    2 tablespoons Greek seasoning (Penzey's Spice, preferred)
    2 tablespoons water
    1/4 cup olive oil
    1/4 cup salad oil
    1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
    1 packet Equal sweetener

Directions

SALAD

Drizzle one half teaspoon olive oil on both sides of the chicken breast and then rub each side with one teaspoon Cajun of seasoning. Grill the chicken breast on medium heat for about 7 to 8 minutes per side, until cooked through. Place chicken on a plate, cover with foil and allow to rest.

While the chicken is grilling, wash and prepare all vegetables and lettuce. Place the vegetables in a large plastic container with the dressing and shake vigorously.

Now, cut the chicken into medallions and chop into uniform pieces. Place the salad on a large plate and top with the chicken.

DRESSING

Combine the Greek seasoning with water and set aside for 10 minutes. Combine the remaining ingredients in a salad dressing shaker, add the seasoning mix and shake well.

NOTE: Nutritional value of dressing has not been included.
