  • Cooking Method: Grilling, Mixing
  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Cook Time: 15 minutes
  • Cuisine Type: Fusion


  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1 medium cabbage, shredded
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 2 lemons, juiced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp dried oregano

Cooking Instructions

  • Preheat your grill to medium-high heat (about 375°F or 190°C).
  • Season the chicken breasts with salt, pepper, and oregano.
  • Grill the chicken for 6-7 minutes per side or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C). Set aside to cool slightly.
  • In a large bowl, mix the shredded cabbage, grated Parmesan cheese, and sliced almonds.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil, minced garlic, salt, and pepper.
  • Pour the lemon dressing over the cabbage mixture and toss to combine.
  • Slice the grilled chicken into thin strips.
  • Place the sliced chicken on top of the salad.
  • Serve immediately, preferably with a side of humor!


  • Swap almonds for sunflower seeds if you have a nut allergy or just want to shake things up.
  • Add a sprinkle of red pepper flakes for a spicy kick.
  • Top with fresh herbs like parsley or basil for extra flavor and aesthetics.
  • For a vegetarian option, substitute grilled tofu for the chicken; because who says salads can’t be flexible?
