This salad is a tried and true crowd pleaser. A basic romaine salad is dressed up with toasted pecans, cranberries, and crumbled blue cheese and tossed with balsamic vinaigrette to serve. Make this an easy meal by adding grilled chicken and serving with a crusty baguette.
The fresh lime juice and mustard add a nice tang to this moist and flaky grilled salmon. I came up with this marinade after tasting something similar at a friend's house and it is now one of our favorite ways to do fish. You may also use other firm fish steaks instead of salmon; halibut, tuna and swordfish all work well.
For a great-tasting, low-fat chicken dish, try this easy Cajun-style recipe. De-boned, skinless chicken breasts are marinated in oil, Cajun seasoning, Italian seasoning, and lemon pepper. While you 're getting the grill up to speed, they're chilling in the fridge.
