Salad is rarely somebody's first choice for a side dish. But regardless of whether we'd rather eat something tastier as a side dish, that's what doing the right thing is all about: being able to endure a little discomfort. This dish is design to make the salad as tasty and fun as possible - with a bonus of delicious chicken breast.

Even for those who aren't really big on salads, this salad will prove pretty easy to make and eat. All you have to do, really, is cut up some greens and put them all together. That's a great part of salads as a side dish: no cooking!
