3 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup rice wine vinegar
2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3 skinned and boned chicken breast halves
1 celery rib, chopped
1/2 cup sweet onion, diced
1/2 cup red bell pepper, chopped
1 cup shredded carrot
4 cups torn mixed salad greens
1 cup fresh blueberries


Whisk together first 6 ingredients. Reserve half of mixture, and chill.

Place chicken in a shallow dish or heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag; pour remaining mixture over chicken. Cover or seal, and chill at least 1 hour.

Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Grill over medium-high heat (350° to 400°) 6 minutes on each side or until done. Cut into thin slices.

Combine celery and next 3 ingredients; add reserved dressing, tossing to coat.

Place chicken over greens. Top with celery mixture; sprinkle with berries.
