Going Green: Greek Salad with Chicken & Sweet Balsamic Vinaigrette

I have a love-hate relationship with salads, and I blame college for my poor eating habits. I used to be an athlete in high school, and I was extremely dedicated to eating well and working out. However, things changed and so did my food choices. I’m trying to get back in the swing of things so I made a Greek Salad with grilled garlic chicken all mixed with sweet balsamic vinaigrette. Below is the recipe, I hope you enjoy!
