This amazing flavorful chicken salad is super delicious. It definitely has a place in my “favorite salad” hall of fame. The best thing is that it takes just a few minutes to cook this yummy dish.
We all know we are supposed to eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables in our everyday diets. And I feel like it is pretty hard to get to that goal. Eating favorite big hearty salads for lunch is the answer. Delicious southwestern healthy salad to the rescue.
This amazing food is loaded with such ingredients as fresh, nutritious vegetables and protein rich chicken. Creamy avocado, juicy cherry tomatoes, bright corn and earthy beans all served on top of a bed of fresh, chopped crispy lettuce. It doesn’t get healthier than that. And this perfect salad is very tasty and satisfying at the same time. And you will love the homemade low fat creamy cilantro dressing. It is a superstar of this wholesome salad.
The secret ingredient in the dressing of this salad is low fat Greek yogurt. Tangy, creamy with silky velvety texture it is a perfect base for this dressing. Forget fattening mayonnaise.
It is super easy to make and will only take a short list of ingredients and under 5 minutes. But it definitely amps up the southwestern flavors of this salad. You can’t even compare it to the store – bought stuff.
We are also gonna use the dressing to marinate the chicken breasts as well. Super convenient! Good marinade is gonna give the chicken so much more flavor and beautiful caramelization while cooking. Thanks to this wonderful marinade chicken is gonna turn out crispy and beautifully browned.
I love the rainbow of colors of avocado, tomatoes, lettuce and golden warm chicken all dressed in creamy greek yogurt in this salad! Looks so tempting and appetizing on the plate no one would be able to resist this vibrant salad! I also love to serve it with some beans and corn tortilla chips on the side for an extra crunch in every bite you take.
So if you are a lover of a great healthy salad full of flavors this recipe is a fantastic find! Enjoy!
