Fresh salads are super good for your body and they look so appetizing. The Lettuce, Grilled Tomato and Chicken Salad is colorful, fresh and super yum. I made this for my breakfast today and made a healthy start to the day!

This #AtoZChallenge is making sure I am eating right this month.


Lettuce provides you Vitamin B-6, C, A, E, and K

They are a rich source of folate, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin vitamins

Tomato is a superfood for your skin

The salad doesn’t have any mayo or fatty dressing so you can eat at peace.

Recipe Type: Salad
Serves: 2


Iceberg Lettuce – 1 cut length wise (you can use Romaine as well)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil – 3 +1 tablespoon
Garlic – 2 cloves, minced
Red Tomato – 2 quartered lengthwise
Red Onion – ½ julienned
Red Wine Vinegar – 3 tablespoon
Salt & Pepper –to taste
Dried Oregano – 1 teaspoon
Chicken – ½ a cup roasted and shredded or cubed in tikka/kebab form
Bread slices - 2


Prepare a grill on high heat. You can use a griddle pan or an electric grill. I am using an electric grill
Brush oil on both the sides of the bread and grill till they are nicely marked
(about 1 minute per side)
Remove bread and keep aside
Drizzle 1 tablespoon of olive oil on over tomato, onion, lettuce and chicken till they are nicely coated.
Place them on the grill
Keep turning the vegetables with a tong frequently – you don’t want anything burnt!
Cook the lettuce till the outer leaves are turning brown
After 5 minutes take them off in a bowl
In a separate bowl combine – Red Wine Vinegar, remaining 2 tablespoon oil, seasoning, Oregano and minced garlic
Drizzle the vinaigrette over the salad
Serve with the grilled breads


Don’t use over ripe tomato – you won’t like how they look after grilling

Try and tell me if you liked it or not.

Until next time, Cheers!
