Lately, it seems, I am all about quick meals!  You would think that with all my kids gone now (either at college or moved away) I would have time to create elaborate meals for Mr. Kitchen Adventures and I every single night.  But the reality is, I have found so many things that need to get done and take up my time, I often find myself looking at the clock at 6 PM and thinking, "What in the world am I going to make for dinner tonight?" Crazy, I know. I am a food blogger, for goodness sakes! 

Some days, it is actually the food blogging itself that keeps me from having time to plan a meal and execute it on time.  On days like that I look to meals like this one.  Simple, nutritious, and most importantly, delicious! 

Having Tyson® Grilled & Ready, all natural, fully cooked Chicken Breast Strips in my freezer is a life-saver for me! They help me quickly add protein to any meal. Simple, wholesome and 100% white-meat chicken ready to go when I am. For this recipe, I also called on a stand-by I've always got in my pantry, Wish-Bone® Italian Dressing.  This dressing is a staple in my house. It easily adds robust flavor to salads and all sorts of dishes. It also makes a great marinade for just about any meat! I love that it is free of high-fructose corn syrup, an ingredient I try to avoid.

If you have never had a lettuce salad with pasta added to it, you are in for a treat! Pasta is a great addition to lettuce. The two textures just work so well together. Mr. Kitchen Adventures isn't too keen on having "just a salad" for dinner, but when I add pasta and chicken to the mix, he's game. Having the chicken in this bowl boosts up the protein in the dish, making it a satisfying meal, even for my husband!

Feel free to customize the veggie part of this salad.  We love marinated veggies in this house, and my grocery store has a great olive/antipasti bar with lots of veggies to choose from! That's where I grabbed the marinated mushrooms, olives, and artichokes for this salad.

You can also make use of the in-store salad bar for the veggies too!  You can purchase only what you need and you can usually find a good assortment of veggies that are ready-to-go.  Of course, there is nothing wrong with going old-school and chopping the veggies yourself either!

This salad was fabulous and will become a regular rotation in our menus! Next time I make it, I plan to change up the veggies a little for a brand new taste. The possibilities are endless!
