Fast & Fresh: Southwestern Chicken Salad

I love salads...especially in the summer!  

They are light, satisfying, full of variety, and easy to make!

Well, this post is actually a modified "Product Review".  Dole has been advertising these new salad kits and I decided to try one.  They are quick right?

So I picked the Southwestern Salad Kit. It's made with iceberg and romaine lettuce, sharp white cheddar cheese, taco ranch dressing, sour cream, and tortilla strips. 

This would make a great lunch but, I decided to dress it up a bit for a dinner entree with some sliced grilled chicken.

This dinner needs no recipe.  I just butterflied a chicken breast, and marinaded it in Brianna's Santa Fe Blend Salad Dressing!!  So YUMMY!

Grill your chicken on the indoor grill pan, or outdoors, like I did.

Cut up your cooked chicken in slices.

Prepare the salad, and top with chicken!

Simple....and delicious!  Love the taco ranch dressing, and the chicken is so moist!

This great for a quick meal.  I would say that Dole's salad kit serve 2-3 people as an entree, and 4 as a side salad.. I hope you will try one of Dole's salad kits, they're quite tasty!

What's your favorite prepared salad??
