Ginger Cilantro Dressing Makes this Paleo Chicken Salad a Lunchtime Treat.

To make this salad I used a maple bacon pancake granola, and a Paleo ginger dressing plus some cilantro. 

Using the granola give lots of texture.  It is a delicious mixture of nuts and seeds and has some really big chunks in it that are a perfect substitute for croutons.  And the flavor the granola adds to this salad is something else.

The salad is chock full of healthy veggies and tender pieces of boneless, skinless chicken breasts.  The avocados go beautifully with the mild ginger cilantro dressing. The pecans also add a crunch to the salad and some heart healthy oils.
