Wrap in whole wheat tortillas for a comfort-food lunch. 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.
