  • ¾ Cup Cherry or grape tomatoes halved
  • ½ English Cucumber sliced or chopped
  • 1 Avocado sliced
  •  Cup Corn Fresh or canned

Homemade Ranch Dressing

    • 1 Cup Plain non-fat Greek yogurt

    • 2 Tsp Lemon Juice
    • 2 Tbsp Onion finely chopped

Instructions

  • Start with making the homemade ranch dressing. Add all the ingredients to a small jar, place the lid on, then shake to emulsify.
  • Pour about 1/3 of the dressing over the chicken and allow it to marinate for at least 15 minutes. Refrigerate the remaining dressing until ready to use.
  • Next, heat oil in a large non-stick pan, and add in the chicken in a single layer. Cook until golden brown and cooked through about 5-7 minutes.
  • To assemble the salad, add green to a large bowl. Top with remaining ingredients. Just before serving toss with the dressing and enjoy!
