Green salads that feature a protein?

We're attempting a very low-carb diet. I'd like some good recipes for greens-based
salads that feature a substantial protein. Please share your favorites!

What I have in mind for the protein in these salads is something more than just nuts (although nuts may be included too). So I'm thinking: chicken, tofu, eggs, fish and beef. I'm very skeptical about salads with pork, unless you feel you have one that's really, really good.
Salads that rely heavily on fruit are generally a no-no, although a little bit is ok. Same goes for sweet dressings.
