Chicken Dinner Salad Recipe Roundup.

Welcome to part 1 of a 4 part dinner salad round-up series. Why I am doing this series? Well, my husband and I have very different opinions of what to eat for dinner. He LOVES eating meat every night, while I prefer at least one meatless meal a week. Unfortunately, my meatless meals haven’t won over my boys, so I’ve come up a compromise – dinner salads! Dinner salads give me the lighter meal that I desire while the boys get the protein they crave.

If you’re looking for lighter meal ideas or just like eating salads, here are 20+ awesome chicken dinner salads that are sure to satisfy even the most carnivorous eater. 

Latin Inspired Chicken Dinner Salads

Do you love eating food from Latin America? My kids have mixed feeling on Latin American cuisine: my two girls don’t care for it and my boys love it. The split vote between my kids can sometimes make it difficult to prepare a meal that they all love. Even though my girls don’t care for many Latin dishes, they will eat taco salads…weird, right? That’s why these salads are the perfect meal to please everyone at the dinner table.

Asian Inspired Chicken Dinner Salads

I can eat Asian food all day long. I don’t know what it is about Asian food, but I absolutely love it and I’m fortunate that my kids love it too. If you ask my kids for their favorite type of food, some type of Asian food will most likely be in the top three. So of course, Asian inspired chicken dinner salads are no-brainers at our house.

Didn’t all of those salads look wonderful?! If you enjoyed this round-up, check back for Part 2 – More Awesome Chicken Dinner Salads and Part 3 – 20 Amazing Beef Dinner Salads. However, if you don’t want to wait, you can find more great salad recipes on my Soup/Salad Pinterest Board right now!
