How to Make Garden Fresh Salad with Grilled Chicken and Buttermilk Dressing:
I served this garden fresh salad with juicy grilled chicken breast. I cut the chicken breast in half and I seasoned the chicken lightly with olive oil, salt/pepper and poultry seasoning. Then, I marinated in the fridge for at least 15 minutes and cooked it on a stove grill pan.
While serving I drizzled some of my homemade buttermilk dill salad dressing with greek yogurt over the top which tastes great and helps for presentation, too.
