TROPICAL CHICKEN SALAD WITH ORANGE VINAIGRETTE 7 PointsPlus TM values | 2 servings Tropical fruit and cucumber make this main dish salad super-refreshing. The next time youre grilling chicken breasts, make extra for this recipe. Coat a medium nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium heat. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, egg whites, scallions, salt and pepper until blended. Add egg mixture to skillet; cook, gently turning mixture with a heat proof spatula or wooden spoon, until eggs start to set, about 2 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and cheese; cook over low heat, gently stirring, just until eggs set, about 1 minute more (there should still be some creamy pieces of cheese). Yields about cup per serving. NOTE: Season to taste before serving, if desired. In a large bowl, stir together orange juice, vinegar, oil, salt and pepper until blended.
