This grilled chicken salad recipe is packed with simple yet flavorful ingredients! Here’s what you’ll need:
Sriracha Lime Grilled Chicken
Chicken Breasts: you’ll need 2 chicken breasts to serve 4 people with this delicious salad.
Sriracha and Lime Juice: you’ll quickly marinate the chicken in a mixture of Sriracha and fresh lime juice to add flavor and make it more juicy and tender.
Salt and Pepper: season the chicken with salt and pepper before marinating to give it just the right amount of extra flavor.
The Rest of This Grilled Chicken Salad Recipe
Lettuce: just use your favorite lettuce! I like to chop it up so it incorporates well with all of the other fruits and veggies.
Pineapple: grilled for a sweet and smoky flavor and insanely juicy texture. I use a pineapple corer to make the slices just the right size.
Tomato: I use halved grape tomatoes.
Red Onion: since red onion has a pretty strong flavor, I recommend chopping it up pretty small so you don’t get way too much in each bite.
Avocado: chopped avocado adds delicious creaminess and provides another source of healthy fat.
Quick Lime Vinaigrette: we’re making a simple lime vinaigrette with olive oil, apple cider vinegar, lime juice, raw honey, and a sprinkle of sea salt.

How Do You Make a Pineapple Ring Without a Corer?
A pineapple corer is a fun tool to have to cut pineapple, but honestly is a tad wasteful in that it takes off a lot of the pineapple meat! Here’s how to make pineapple rings without one:
Cut off the top and bottom of your pineapple.
Cut off the green skin.
Cut into slices.
Use a tablespoon to scoop out the center piece in each slice!
