This smoked chicken breast salad is a complete meal by itself, including protein, whole grains, and omega-3 fatty acids. The citrus juices used to dress the chicken and the salad provide vitamin C, which will help the body better absorb the iron in the dish. Grapefruit juice, in particular, is also a good source of vitamin A and potassium. (If you take prescription medications, check with your pharmacist before eating grapefruit. It's been shown to increase the absorption of certain drugs, which can lead to dangerous side effects.)
