  • Grill (optional)


  • 4 cups salad greens I prefer arugula or other bitter greens
  • 1 orange
  • 1 grapefruit
  • 0.5 lb chicken breast
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp pepitas


  • If grilling chicken breast, preheat your grill for about 10 minutes. It should reach the temperature of about 450°F.
  • While grill is heating up, chop your salad greens.
  • Peel your orange and grapefruit. Separate each piece of fruit and then chop into thirds, removing any seeds.
  • Season your chicken breast with salt and pepper. Place on the grill for 10 minutes, flipping halfway through.
  • One chicken is cooked, remove from the grill and set aside to cool.
  • Once chicken is cool enough, cut it into slices to top your salad.
  • Add your pepitas on top of the salad, along with any vegan cheese you might be adding.
  • Add in your olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Toss the salad to evenly distribute the dressing.
