4 servings (serving size: about 2 cups salad and 1 cup chips)

With chicken, cheddar cheese, and black beans, this Southwestern-influenced salad needs nothing on the side except some iced tea. Fresh lime gives it a citrusy counterpunch.

The dressing is what is special about this salad, adding/omitting things to the salad as you like. I added avocado and corn and omitted the cheese (we don't eat dairy) and chips (although they would have been so yummy) for cutting calories. Will definitely make again. Maybe with chips if its a cheat day :)

This is a delicious salad! The only thing is, it needed double the dressing... As written, it is a bit dry. After adding the extra dressing, it was a perfect, light meal. Could eat it by the bucket!

Spectacular, healthy, tasty meal salad. Can vary the heat with cayenne or the heat of the chile powder. I used med-hot from New Mexico. A great picnic dish or a quick meal at home.

This is a fantastic salad. Made as directed, but felt it needed just a little bit of seasoned salt. After I added that, it was perfect. Have made many times and my guests rave about it. Have made it the night before with the dressing separate and it tasted great. Great picnic salad.

I made this for a special lunch for my grandmother and I before she went into surgery for a few months and she loved it. When her surgery was over, the first day she was home she asked me to make it for lunch. :)
