This dill chicken summer salad is the perfect light summery dish for you! It’s simple enough to make during a lunch break or for those nights when you don’t want to spend an hour in the kitchen cooking.

Sometimes I just get a craving for VEGGIES. I want a big bowl of fresh vegetables to help clean my belly and mind. I’m a big believer in having protein at every meal; so for this salad, I turned to my favorite baked dill chicken tenders. The dill crust on chicken is light, fresh, and really tasty.

The Sriracha Lemon Dressing brings the whole dish together. It’s spicy, bright, and fat free. Add more or less Sriracha depending on how spicy you like your food.

Oh yes! It’s also a paleo dish. So eat up! It’s good for ya.  If you’re looking for more summer salad inspiration, you might also love this BBQ Chicken Cobb Salad for another tasty alternative!
