Grilled Chicken and French Bean Salad

Grilled Chicken and French Bean Salad
French beans and string beans are terms that are used interchangeably.  This recipe makes the french beans come alive.  It is crunchy and tasty.  The grilled chicken and cheese makes everything come together.

My own original recipe.
