This easy to make Rainbow Salad Bowl with Chicken is packed with nutrients and so delicious! It is packed with vegetables your body will thank you for.
Lately, my diet has been primarily composed of one bowl meals that I can prepare the elements for on the weekend and quickly throw together when things get crazy during the week.
(Because with three kids, things always get crazy.)
Having everything prepped or easy to prepare makes me much more likely to reach for something that will make me feel good versus heading for one of the kids snacks.
At least once a day, one of my meals is a salad.
In the past, daily salads meant a rut because my bowl would be the same for weeks on end.
These days, I keep staples like chicken and salad dressing on hand but enjoy mixing things up daily.
A perfect example is today's grilled chicken salad with beets, broccoli and fresh mozzarella.
Starting with cooked chicken, I get a delicious protein packed meal at is both delicious and simple and easy to make. I love topping it all off with the robust, full-flavored Italian Dressing.
Although I like to roasted and chop all of the vegetables ahead of time, this can easily be done just before you eat.
