Mexican Chicken Salad

This is a great (almost) no cook meal! I throw this together if I have some leftover grilled chicken and the rest of the ingredients are pantry and produce staples. Arranging it on a platter makes it look as good as it tastes!

Grilled Spiced Wings

Sunday nights in the summer tend to be our BBQ night. We’re not rushing home from work and we love to be outside, especially towards evening as it cools off. These Grilled Wings are a family favorite, with their sweet and spicy rub that crisps up on the grill. I found this great recipe watching Cooks Country, where they test out all kinds of methods and come up with the best one. These wings are crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. I serve the wigs with a quick homemade vegan garlic ranch.
Every once in a while I love to have a big salad for dinner. When salad is our main dish, some of the heartier eaters in my family often ask me tongue and cheek, “so, now that we’ve had our salad, what’s for dinner?” The addition of crunchy whole grain croutons and lots of feta cubes along with the many fresh veggies makes for a hearty dinner, even for the salad skeptics. This dinner salad is inspired by a recipe from the Barefoot Contessa, with a few (healthy) tweaks.
