Need a meat for a salad...

I'm going away for a few days and I want to clear out fridge. Tonight, I'm making a huge salad with basically everything perishable in my fridge. Although I have some proscioutto, I want some more meat (or chicken) that I'd be willing to purchase/cook that wiould go well with the following (I'm thinking roast beef, fyi) Here's what's going in salad so far:
Fresh (not so fresh anymore) mozzarella
Red Onion (optional)
What should I add?? Should I just grill chicken breast? Should I buy quarter pound roast beef and cut it up?
Any interesting ideas?
all those strong flavors, i'd use chicken thighs. but i prefer dark meat to light! would all be yummy with a nice lemony dressing.
Buy a rotisierre (sp?) chicken if you really want to add something. Yes on the garbanzos and red onion! But it sounds good as is.
Definitely chicken, maybe even grilled (or broiled) shrimp... I wouldn't do the roast beef because I don't think it compliments the other flavors as well, but that's MHO. Sounds good so far, though.
i'd use some tuna. grilled or pan-seared would be best, but canned would probably fit with everything else here too.
some nice chunks of soppresata salami would be terrific and some sharp provolone would do the trick.
