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.

    I never heard of buttermilk dressing before. Is it a healthy dressing? If so, I would so love to try this.

      Yes, I think it’s healthy because it’s packed with essential nutrients. Find low-fat buttermilk product with no other artificial ingredients.

    This is the second recipe I’ve tried of yours this week. It’s really good, I like the dressing as it’s light yet still creamy enough. I added some extra asparagus in my salad, something I often do even if a recipe doesn’t call for it…. I recommend that slight tweak/addition as the buttermilk dressing pairs well with the crunch of asparagus.
