Crisp Greens and Warm Ginger Chicken Salad

sorry for the poor picture quality, bad lighting at our old place.
Mmm nothing is better than a salad piled high with food! I snagged this recipe from Slim Fast and gave it my own twist since I didn't have some of the ingredients on hand. This is great for a lunch or to accompany with something starchy like homemade bread sticks (recipes anyone?) or some dill bread. My stomach is growling now!

Crisp Greens & Warm Ginger Chicken Salad
1/4 cup of light mayo (I use light miracle whip, use whatever you prefer)
2 teaspoons of vinegar, red wine (white works too)
2 teaspoons soy sauce, low sodium
2 teaspoons of honey
1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger
4 large oranges (ex: California navel)
12 cups of spring greens (Dole makes this mix)
4 chicken breasts, boneless
8 oz. snow pea pods, fresh or frozen, optional. (I use the frozen steamers, they keep longer)

Place your chicken under the broiler for fastest results but you can also bake or grill. I seasoned the breasts lightly with salt and pepper first.

Peel and section two of the oranges, set aside. Slice remaining oranges in half and squeeze juice into a small bowl. Combine mayo, ginger, honey, soy sauce, vinegar, and reserved juice.
In large bowl toss greens with dressing, serve and top with snow peas, chicken, and orange slices. Add a hard boiled egg if you so fancy, yummy! This recipe is good for 4 servings.
