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.

great salad!! its very filling so i think next time i will only make half the portions (because theres only two of us eating it) but it makes a great meal by itself. a couple of the things that we did differently were to marinade the chicken in lime, cilantro, garlic and other spices. also, i cut the dressing to half a cup and added extra lime juice and pepper for flavor. very tasty and very fresh! we loved it!

Delicious salad which we enjoyed! I only used one head of lettuce, a bit more beans (using the whole can), a smaller can of olives and only cheddar cheese with delicious results. This makes a huge salad and could easily feed 6-8 or more! We will be enjoying this salad for lunch during the week. Thanks for sharing!

This was fabulous! The only thing I changed was to coat the chicken strips in some of the taco seasoning before grilling. I also used iceburg lettuce since that was what I had. Otherwise I kept true to the recipe and we loved it! Far superior to a salad we often order in a Mexican chain restaurant! This salad was fresh, healthy, light and filling all at the same time! A true keeper. We will enjoy this salad many times in the Summer months! Thanks for sharing! :)
