Grilled Chicken and Mixed Greens Salad
Finding foods that my husband will eat is sometimes a challenge. I came up with this salad in an effort to duplicate one of his favorite restaurant dishes. He ate very bite!

The marinade made the chicken very moist and gave it wonderful flavor. With the pineapples in the salad it didn't need any dressing!
