In the past few days I've eaten about 5 salads! And I'm really enjoying it. My basic "chicken" salad recipe is as follows:

Take either a lean chicken breast,chicken tender,or breast strips and "braise" (boil) in low sodium,low fat,NO MSG chicken broth until they are fully cooked.I add salt,pepper and garlic. I either chop them into bite size pieces or shred the chicken-depending on my mood. I then add whatever type of shredded cheese (low fat) that I have on hand and add that to a big bowl of hearts of romaine lettuce.If I have it on hand I will add broccoli or cauliflower florets (or both like I did at supper today).I will then add whatever dressing suits my fancy.Lately I've been wanting ranch. Instead of croutons,I will either crunch up a few pita crispy chips and add to the salad or just eat the pita crisps on the side.This has been my lunch and supper today and it can be really filling.

What is your fave salad? What is your fave dressing?
