Grilled chicken and Beet Salad

To prepare the chicken, place 3 or 4 boneless skinless breasts in a frying pan with about 2 Tbsp olive oil. Brown on each side, then continue to flip the chicken every five minutes or so over medium heat until no longer pink. Meanwhile, prepare your salad:

Beet Salad

  • 2 cups cooked diced beets
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 1 tsp basil
  • 2 Tbsp cider vinegar (more or less to taste)
  • 1-2 Tbsp olive oil

Combine all ingredients.  Add more vinegar and oil to taste.

Crab Salad

This is a nice, simple lunch, but really yummy.

Crab Salad

  • 1/3 cup crab meat or imitation crab meat
  • lettuce or salad greens
  • raw almonds

Spread salad greens on a plate and sprinkle with crab meat.  Spread the almonds over the salad and enjoy!  You may use a salad dressing if you like, but I think it’s better plain.

  • 1/2 cup sliced red onion
  • 1/2 cup black olives, halved
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese

Combine the lettuce, cucumber, tomato, onion and olives and toss. Mix the oil, lemon juice and oregano and pour over the lettuce mixture. Sprinkle with cheese and serve immediately.
