This chicken taco salad is one of our favourite meals - juicy, grilled cilantro lime chicken tossed with salad, tortilla chips and tasty taco ranch dressing! You’ll be eating it all summer long.
This chicken taco salad is probably one of my favourites though. I've made it more times then I can count, and we are always happy with this meal.
The chicken is marinated with a cilantro lime marinade and then grilled to juicy perfection. The salad is filled with all your favourite taco toppings - lettuce, corn, bell peppers, tomatoes, olives, avocado, green onions, cilantro and tortilla chips.
And the dressing is fantastic. It actually might be my favourite part of this salad.
And while that's tasty, it doesn't compare to this version.
This chicken is just so flavourful and amazing with that cilantro lime marinade. And the dressing is SO good.
Simple to make, it's just mayo, sour cream, ranch seasoning, taco seasoning and lime juice - but it goes so well with the other flavours happening here. It really makes the salad in my opinion so don't skip it!
I know a lot of people don't think salad makes a meal (my husband might be one of them!), but this one definitely does. I don't even get any complaints from my family, who typically fall in the "salad is not a meal" camp.
Everyone here is happy having this salad as a meal.
Possibly that's because they get tortilla chips with their dinner.
That's okay though, because we are all happy when this salad makes an appearance at the dinner table!
