Bill and I got back from Chicago this week, and after eating all of the amazing food there we decided we needed to eat something healthy for dinner. In college I used to love to get food from our salad bar because I could choose what was going on my salad. I decided to use the same concept for dinner. I collected some of my favorite toppings and here was dinner! I went to the farmers market that morning too, so everything was really fresh and some of the items were from our garden too. The best thing about this dinner is you can use whatever toppings you like. Very simple and delicious!

A few hours before you want to eat, pull out your chicken and spread steak rub on it. Turn on grill. When grill is hot, put on chicken and cook until done. Let chicken cool for about 10-15 minutes and slice. Put chicken in fridge.
While chicken is cooking, place 4 eggs into saucepan and cover eggs with water. Bring eggs to hard boil and let them boil 1 minute. Remove eggs from heat (keep in water) for 10 minutes. Remove eggs from water and run COLD water on them. Place eggs in fridge to until cold.
When you are ready to eat, clean and place lettuce in bowls. Pull out all of the fruits and vegetables, and prepare them for the salad. Pull out eggs, remove shells and cut. Pull out chicken. Set up the ingredients on a platter and ooh la la...dinner! Top with your favorite salad dressing. Enjoy!
