Chicken Taco Salad

Came home tired after Foam Fest (Google it) with thoughts of the leftover zucchini lasagna for supper. I figured, with only 1 boy home, that the two larger portions that were leftover would have 1 left for me. Nope!

Plan B! Chicken Taco Salad, Kinda!

I was planning to have roasted broccoli with my lasagna so I incorporated it into my salad.

Make a batch of Epicure’s Caesar dressing with a tsp or two of Epicure’s Fajita & a generous (3finger) pinch of chopped cilantro.

Combine approx 1/2cup Corn with a 1/2 or so of rinsed Black Beans. Toss with some Fajita Caesar Dressing. Squeeze some fresh lime juice over.

Fry up 1 chicken breast tossed with Fajita and layer onto your corn/beans. Top with diced avocado. Season the whole works with more fresh lime juice and Chili Garlic Salt. Serve with Tortilla chips if desired.Chicken Taco Salad
