Spinach chicken salad recipe

Well, not only that it is healthy it is delish!!!
There is a little secret about the chicken... :-)
I marinade it first. So...

1 chicken breast, skinless, boneless. Cut it in pieces and put it in a bowl. Add a dash of black pepper, 1 tbl spoon olive oil, 1/2 t spoon paprika, 1 t spoon garlic powder...and something that will makr your chicken just delicious...1 tbl spoon lime juice. Put it aside and marinade for at least 30 minutes.

Now salad.
Pretty easy
1/2 cup cottage cheese
6-7 cherry tomatoes
1 small cucumber, sliced
1/2 cup sliced red onion
2 big Radishes, sliced
1 small bell pepper, sliced

Then layers - Spinach, onion, radish, pepper, tomatoes, cottage cheese.
For The Dressing:
2 tbl spoons balsamic vinegar
1 tbl spoon Extra Virgin Olive Olive
1/4 tea spoon sugar
1/4 t spoon salt
dash black pepper
Mix it in a small bowl, cover and give it a good shake.

And back to the chicken. Heat 1 table spoon of olive oil in a skillet and fry the chicken until it's ready to go (no pink).
Put it on top of the salad and then pour the dressing.
