Grill this!

All I can say is that I love the damn grill. I'm considering not putting it away, even during these New England winters! So, here's the deal. I've been grilling like every night and I LOVE that I don't have a mess to clean up. It's the best! And let's get real (oh, that was so Dr. Phil, sorry!), everything tastes better on a grill rather than under the oven broiler or in the George Foreman grill! So, here's what I cooked tonight...I should have taken a picture because if I don't say so myself it looked quite lovely- a very healthy and colorful meal!

Grilled chicken served on a bed of spinach salad-dressed with a citrus salsa, blue cheese and a touch of balsamic vinegarette. Yum!

What You'll need:

-Spinach Salad
-Crumbled blue cheese
-balsamic vinaigrette
-*Citrus Salsa

-1 large seedless pink grapefruit, peeled and chopped up
-1 large seedless yellow or white grapefruit, peeled and chopped up
-3 tbs. of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
-1/2 small red onion diced
-3 tbs. chopped cilantro

How to:
