    We have a fun little restaurant that is only open for lunch. They specialize in different varieties of salads. This is one of my favorites! I use Awesome Fajita Marinade for the chicken breasts.

      YUMMY! I'm sooooo not a salad person, but I wanted to try something different and my husband likes this type of salad so I gave it a shot. LOVED it. Based on other reviews, I halved the recipe and it still made enough for supper tonight and lunch tomorrow. I didn't use avocados or olives because we don't care for them and used 1/2 a head of iceberg lettuce, but I followed the recipe (halved) otherwise. This is definitely going to be a make again and again recipe. Thanks!

      This is a wonderful, easy salad. Most ingredients I always have on hand anyway. I'll admit, most ingredients I didn't measure since I made just 2 servings; our version too was very filling. I substituted sour cream for the ranch dressing & taco seasoning & avacado (I made it at the last minute and didn't have these), and it gave a nice texture and flavor. The suggested marinade was delicious too! Thanks!

      We loved this salad! Even the picky ones in the family liked it. I used the recommended fajita marinade and it was super! In a pinch, you could just use deli chicken and this would go together really fast. One note: be careful with the taco seasoning. The kind we used had a lot of salt in it and it did make the ranch dressing too salty for our tastes. Next time I'll cut it down. I plan to serve this buffet style at my next book club meeting.
