This time of year, it seems like there are sweets everywhere I look! I definitely have a sweet tooth, but sometimes I’m just like, “Can a girl get a salad, please?” This grilled chicken salad is a delicious and light meal that’s perfect for counterbalancing all of those holiday desserts. It’s quick and easy to make, and full of ingredients you can feel good about!

This salad has so many great toppings! Fresh cherry tomatoes, juicy corn, tender chicken, shredded cheese, avocado, red onion… yum! I always love to add a little crunch to my salad, and I decided to change things up from my typical croutons by using some Harvest Snaps.

If you haven’t tried Harvest Snaps before, you are in for a special treat! Harvest Snaps are delicious and crisp little snacks made from high quality ingredients – like non-GMO green peas, black beans, and red lentils. You can find Harvest Snaps in the produce section of your local grocery store. They taste delicious, and they’re a better-for-you snack that’s guilt free! I chose the white cheddar flavor of Harvest Snaps for my salad, and I love how they complement all of the other delicious flavors.

One of my favorite things about this grilled chicken salad is that it’s so quick to make! You do need to take a little time to marinate the chicken, but you could easily start marinating it earlier in the day, and have it ready to go at lunchtime or dinner time. I like to grill the chicken to make things easier, but you could cook it in a skillet on the stovetop if you don’t feel like grilling.
