Colby Jack Grilled Chicken Salad #keto

I’m going to share something with you.

As much as I love food, sometimes I hate cooking. Don’t even get me started on the cleaning up afterwards.

Shortly after I started YUM eating I quickly realized how much of a mess I was going to be cleaning up – ALL the time. While I do get help sometimes, I don’t really get a lot of help with the photo set up, shooting, presentation and plating of food. When I have starving people staring at me, wondering when I am going to feed their mouths, I feel frantic and rushed. I still haven’t mastered the art of keeping some of the food out for later or for in the morning.

Mostly because we never have leftovers here.

I guess time management skills just aren’t on my side.

So, when it comes to creating healthy lunches for myself, I tend to just stick to easy salads like this one. I will grill up a few chicken breasts earlier in the week and keep them in a glass pyrex dish for safe keeping. I am lucky that my family prefers the dark meat, so I don’t get bothered too much.

My grilled colby jack chicken salad is just a bunch of mixed greens with cherry tomatoes, grilled chicken and slices of colby-jack cheese. I warmed the chicken up so it would make the cheese a bit melty.

I love cheese and I have been trying to cut back on it, so this salad was a real treat for me.

I highly suggest splurging for the mixed greens. Much better taste and more filling than iceberg lettuce.

Salad lovers, what’s your favorite flavor combination?

  1. Mixed greens are my favorite too. Sometimes in the summer I am able to grow my own lettuce and I have a great variety! This year was too dry though.

  2. I don’t eat salad, horrible right? I don’t like lettuce (again horrible lol, I get made fun of lots) but my kids? LOVE salads and request them often, this would be great!

  3. My friend’s daughter is only 2 but she says Colby Jack so crystal clear. It is fantastic so I don’t blame her. Got to try this salad in her honor.

  4. My favorite flavor combo for salads is anything where sweet and salty is mixed. I had a great feta and watermelon salad which was amazing. I am going to make your salad for lunch this week.
