Southwest Chicken Salad

I’ve been craving greens lately {probably because my iron is borderline low}, so I’ve been drinking green smoothies and eating salads. For our church potluck on Sunday, I decided to put together a Southwest Chicken Salad inspired by my sister’s delicious version!

Doesn’t that look delicious? Drool.

This recipe is very much an easy “eyeball” type recipe. Just whatever looks right will do.

This is how it looks with everything tossed together.

What is your favorite type of salad?

  2. I am making this — looks so delicious! I like spinach salads of all kinds — most commonly I add sliced almonds, grated parmesan, diced apples, crumbled bacon with either chicken, salmon or steak (depending on what is left over) and toss with olive oil and a splash of white wine vinegar. Simple and delicious!

  3. YUMMY!!!

  8. That looks so tasty! I love salads, and my main criteria for a good one is lots of different veggies and a little bit of meat preferably (chicken, turkey) and a grain included too. I love a salad to be hearty enough for a full meal with nothing else needed. :) THIS definitely looks like it will fit!

  10. I love dishes like this… where it looks both “put-together” and “chaotic” at the same time. And I love the idea of mixing Ranch dressing with a little taco seasoning and hot sauce! I’ll definitely add that to the process next time I make Mexican or Southwestern food (really, any excuse to spice up Ranch will be used frequently).
