“berry good” tossed salad with grilled chicken

Even though it’s not summer yet, I’m going to pretend it is and share with you my favorite salad–well, it was before I went veggie. Eating healthy sometimes sounds very unappealing, but I know for me at least, I tend to eat a lot more healthy if whatever healthy food that’s on my plate looks appealing and colorful. If you’re the same way, this salad is THE. ONE. FOR. YOU.

Just tossing the ingredients together really quick and throwing it on a plate or keeping the mix in the bowl is like having Picasso as your own personal chef. Could you imagine? 😍 So, if you’ve never had this type of salad (I can’t fathom that because I eat it all the time), keep reading for the recipe, try it out, and thank me later.

Ready in 15 minutes! Serves 2.

+ 1 ½ cup Arugula
+ 1 ½ cup Kale

+ 100g boneless skinless chicken breast halves
+ ¼ tsp. salt

***I am not a chef. Or all that creative, let's be real. Didn't McDonald's sell this salad at some point?
