1 bunch of Organic Romaine lettuce, spring greens, mixed greens or other healthy lettuce. The recipe says head lettuce – please don’t eat this. It has no nutrition and really isn’t tasty.

3 cups of organic chicken breast.  If you’re in a hurry Whole Foods Market has cooked breasts in the deli at many locations.

3 green onions. I didn’t have these once, and it was all right, but the do add a wonderful flavor!

2 small tomatoes chopped – I leave them out.

Your favorite salad dressing. If you’re in my ecourses you know I love to use these amazing flavor-infused vinegar and olive oils. No matter where you live in the USA, these can be shipped or bought. If you’re in another country, I have found countless markets filled with these too.

Other dressing options are found in natural grocery stores. The milk or sour cream based may taste great but add pounds; chose our salad dressing carefully.
