Jacked Up Monterey Chicken Salad takes a really great dish (the chicken salad) and makes it even better. Can you go wrong with a recipe such as this one? Not likely. This recipe begins with you grilling the chicken, but you could start with pre-cooked chicken quite easily. So if you are in a rush, choose that method to begin. A few interesting ingredients are added to contribute rich flavor and plenty of depth to the salad. A pre-made salad blend is also used. You can choose that or just put together what you like best and blend that in the salad. The choice is yours. And that is one of the very best things about salad. You can put whatever you like in it, and change ingredients for others as you go along.

This Jacked Up Monterey Chicken Salad is a nutritious blend, as well as one that is possibly lower in fat than some other salads you might eat. Here, the greens make a great contribution in terms of complex carbohydrates. The chicken is a lean source of protein as well as other vitamins and minerals. Go easy on the sauces to keep this meal nutritious. Cheese also helps this dish out by adding even more protein, and important minerals including magnesium and calcium. We are all aware of the important role of calcium in helping us build strong bones and good teeth. Magnesium is also a very important mineral. It not only helps calcium get digested in to our bodies so we can make good use of that mineral, but also supports about 300 other processes in our body. Magnesium might be a mineral we do not pay much attention to, but it deserves our focus. Magnesium is found in natural leafy vegetables like the ones in this salad, so eat lots of it.

This salad is packed with good nutrition and at least two really important minerals are provided in the cheese and other good ingredients. Calcium is a mineral we all know about, but magnesium, found in the leafy greens, is another veggie we need to pay attention to in our daily food plan. So enjoy this lunch meal, and know that you are giving your body good things that it needs. Enjoy.
