Chicken & Artichoke Bowl

What image comes to mind when you think of a salad? For many people that is iceberg lettuce with some watery tomatoes and a few cucumbers thrown in. Not a very appetizing image, is it? And this kind of salad is not satisfying or nutritious at all. No wonder, many people scrunch their nose when they hear the word salad. But let me tell you, those are the salads of the past. I want you to expand your definition of a salad and try something new.

Nowadays, my salads are dense with nutrients, delicious, crunchy, filling and super-creative. They give me energy to work hard during the day, and they leave me satisfied. The best part is that the number of ways you can put together these salads are endless. Here is one of my combos.
