Southwest Chicken Salad

This salad is incredibly easy, so there's no excuses. Salad doesn't have to be the boring plate of limp iceberg lettuce, with ends all brown and soggy. Salad is just the vehicle for anything your mind can create.

Cutting Board
Sharp Knife
Small Bowl

Lettuce (I used red leaf)
Handful of Cherry Tomatoes, halved
1/2C (roughly) Chopped, seasoned chicken thighs (cooked of coarse)
1/4C Black Beans
4Tbl Corn Salsa
4T Chopped Scallions
Avocado-Jalpeno Dressing

1 Avocado, pitted and scooped out
JalapeƱo Ranch Dressing
Juice of half a lime

Squeeze the lime juice over the avocado and mash, add in dressing to get a nice creamy consistency.

It really is that easy. Enjoy.

I just returned from beautiful Troncones Mexico. It was the most relaxing vacation I have ever taken. Having that week off makes it easier to dive headlong into the insanity of work and catering, that is about to begin for me starting next week. I admit to not taking a lot of food photos, but here are some from my trip.
