Grilled Buttermilk Chicken Salad

During the summer and warmer months, I often want something a little lighter for dinner. You won’t find many soups or casseroles on my menu plan right now. I am much more likely to grill something or make a salad.

I love salad for dinner. It is a quick, easy, and healthy meal. However, my husband does not really like just salad for dinner. In order to make us both happy, I like to serve salads that contain quite a bit of meat. Or at least where my husband’s salad can contain quite a bit of meat.

This buttermilk grilled chicken salad works perfectly for that. We both enjoy this salad, and it makes for a perfect summertime meal.

    Printing this one out right now! Sounds yummy, simple and made with ingredients I usually have on hand. Thanks Lynn!

  2. I love salads for dinner, especially if I eat a huge lunch. I actually prefer to eat a huge lunch and a light dinner, but it doesn’t always work out that way.
    Your buttermilk chicken sounds yummy

  3. Looks like a perfect refreshing dinner!

  4. What kind of salad dressing do you use with this salad?

  5. I bet the butermilk makes this so tender.

  6. Hi Lynne!
    I have copied this recipe to add to my files. It sounds like something I would really like. There is nothing better than a salad with chicken on a hot summer night. And here in FL, we have a lot of those…..

    Thanks for sharing Lynn!

  8. Do you use extra, non-chicken contaminated marinade for the dressing?

  9. Hi Lynn,

    This looks really yummy! I love salads. 🙂

    Whenever we go to Applebees, I usually get 1/2 of the chicken caesar salad. About a year ago, I was diligently counting WW points and discovered that this specific salad (whole, not half) was MORE points than the 9 oz. sirloin steak. 😮 I said “WHAT!?” There were a lot of surprises while I was counting those WW points. LOL

    Now I’m just more active and I watch my portions, as well as carbs and sugars.

    I don’t like milk per se; however, I’d like to try this recipe sometime. 🙂
