Summer Salad with Corn Salsa and Spicy Lime Chicken

Lately I am all about the quick and healthy meals.  What I seem to be making most often are fresh salads that are full of variety and then topping them with some sort of marinated grilled meat.  Easy and tasty!

This is a prime example of what has been happening at our house.  Mixed greens topped with some grape tomatoes, avocado, black beans, corn salsa, homemade croutons and then finished off with some grilled spicy lime chicken. Oh man, this was a good one.

The inspiration for the salad is from How Sweet It Is and her Black Bean and Cornbread Panzanella Salad.  That girl is queen of the tasty salads!  I knew that a meat-less salad for supper wouldn't go over well with my husband so I quickly marinated some chicken breasts so we could throw them on the BBQ when he came home.  The chicken went perfectly with the salad and when we paired it with some fresh bread everyone was happy, happy, happy.

I didn't follow a specific recipe for the corn salsa I used on this salad (which is also awesome served alone with some nacho chips!) since I make it fairly often.  This recipe is how I made it this particular time, but feel free to mix it up!  You will have extra corn salsa after it is all said and done, so eat it the next day as a snack :)

You can use a lime or citrus vinaigrette for this salad if you like.  I received some amazing Mandarine Orange Olive Oil from my MIL for my birthday this year and it was perfect on this salad. 

This recipe makes 2 servings and was inspired by How Sweet It Is and her amazing salad.
