Fiesta Salad

In an effort to eat healthier lately, we have been making a lot of salads at home. I have to come up with recipes that make me excited, even if it is just for a salad or I will retreat back to my normal routine and push healthy dinners to the wayside. One of our favorite things to make is a grilled chicken bowl with rice and veggies, so I decided to take all of the ingredients I love from that and replace rice with romaine lettuce and drizzle with a flavorful dressing.

Fiesta Salad Recipe

1 bunch romaine lettuce

2 Chicken Breast (shredded)

1/2 red onion (chopped)

2 white corn on the cob

1/2 tortilla strips (or crushed chips)

1/2 cup shredded Mexican cheese

1 Avocado thinly sliced

Bring water to a boil and place chicken breast in the pot. Leave in water until they are cooked through (about 15 minutes) While the chicken is cooking, wash the romaine, pat dry and roughly chop. Place into large bowl. Slice the corn right off the cob into the bowl, add tortilla strips (or crunched chips), chopped red onions, cheese, toss lightly. Once the chicken is cooked all the way through, shred into small pieces using two forks. Add the chicken to the salad, pour dressing over and toss throughly. Add the avocado and top with a tiny pinch of salt and cracked black pepper.

I have yet to make a dressing I love for this salad as much as the Green Goddess from Trader Joe’s. It compliments the flavor in the salad perfectly!

    Looks great! You do not cook the corn, right?
    Thank you!

    Hi Breda!
    You can do either. If I have more time I cook the corn while the chicken is boiling and let it cool before slicing off the cob, but a lot of the time I will use the raw corn and it tastes just as good!
