Tex Mex Chicken Salad with Honey Lime Dressing

For me, when life gets busy, there's nothing more refreshing or delicious than a fully loaded salad. And the nice thing about salad for dinner is that it can almost be entirely prepped ahead so that all you have to do when you get home from work, or from looking after your family, is dump ingredients into a bowl.




















My Tex Mex salad is loaded with healthy ingredients like avocado, peppers, niblets corn, chicken, shrimp, crunchy tortilla strips, and a honey like salad dressing that's worth the entire price of admission!




















This is a healthy, and very delicious dinner salad, so if you try it, let me know! As well, be sure to subscribe to follow this blog, and follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and Youtube.

I upload two new recipe blogs and videos a week!
