Watermelon & Chicken SaladNow that the weather is so hot, the last thing any of us want for dinner is a heavy meal.  Of course I still want to give my guys a hearty and healthy option that I can fit into our crazy schedule. Salads fit the bill completely!

Salads are so much more than just a bowl of lettuce. There are recipes galore and you could probably make a different salad every day for an entire year with all the different protein, veggie and dressing combinations available. At my house, the key to a good salad is one that I can put together quickly, that tastes great and of course is healthy.

Today I thought I would share a recipe that fits all my key criteria…plus is very budget friendly thanks to the big Publix coupon in our current Advantage Buy flyer.

You have to try this Watermelon & Chicken Salad recipe. It combines the great taste and convenience of Wish-Bone® Dressing and Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken with sweet watermelon, salty feta and peppery arugula for a perfect balance of flavors! Plus it comes together in about 10 minutes for a perfect meal any day of the week!
