Chicken Fajita Salad

I’m about tired of tasteless lettuce from the market.  I can’t wait for the lettuce seeds in my garden bowl to grow and I will have some fresh greens.  In the meantime, I still needed to come up with something for dinner.

Since Mexican food is always at the top of my list – not the diet’s list – I first chopped a big bowl of lettuce and then put half of it in a zip lock bag for later. (That was entirely too much of a good thing.)  The battle was what to fix with it.  So I came up with a Chicken Fajita salad.  What I did was bury the lettuce with strips of fajita flavored chicken breast, red and yellow peppers and onion.  Then I threw in some sliced baby bellas and drizzled it all with a low fat Ranch dressing.  Not bad for a 20 minute dinner.  Dinner done!

    Great pic! I am sure it’s delish too! Years ago we were in TX and they had a drive-thru Fajita place and that was our first Fajita experience! Loved them! Thanks for sharing! Happy Friday, D

    This sounds delicious! Unfortunately, store bought produce just can’t compare with home grown, can it? Home grown has so much flavor! But it sounds like you definitely made a flavorful salad here!
    Thanks for sharing at Saturday Dishes! Pinning and featuring your post on Friday!

  16. Joy @ Yesterfood

    I’m with you on the store-bought lettuce, Linda, and also the store-bought tomatoes! Time for some home-grown veggies. I saw your Fajita Salad over at Saturday Dishes (still miss you), and wanted to come over and tell you how pretty it is. I like that this salad is healthy, but still feels kinda indulgent. ;)

    Happy Weekend, Linda! ♥
