Chicken Taco Salad with Cilantro Ranch is a loaded up salad with magnificent ingredients to get your clean eating in gear. The homemade ranch will tingle your tastebuds!
With the holiday season behind us are you feeling the need for some cleaner eating? Cookie detox as I personally refer to it.
Or if you love to enjoy your weekends like I do by indulging a bit with decadent foods, then maybe this is the perfect Monday meal to get back on track for the week. Or it’s also perfect just as a quick meal for a busy day.
I prefer to have my salads loaded up with toppings, flavor, and drenched with a completely crave-able dressing. With lettuce added as an afterthought.
Salads should be filling and hearty enough to be an entire meal! And this salad is no exception!
Chicken is cooked with homemade taco seasoning with tons of flavor and a bit of spice, which is the perfect balance to the cool and comforting cilantro ranch dressing.
If you're not much for taco seasoning and the bit of spice, then you can always swap out the chicken with a Chili Lime Chicken instead.
Other toppings include tomatoes, black beans, corn, avocado, cheese, tortilla chips.
Feel free to dress the salad up with other favorite taco toppings like black olives, green onion, extra cilantro, or pretty much anything else your stomach and heart desires.
The dressing is an easy to put together homemade ranch with the addition of cilantro and lime juice. A quick pulse in the blender or a food processor puts this dressing together in a matter of a minute.
Once you make and taste this dressing for the first time, you'll know what you've been missing all these years! Quick and delicious.
That makes this the perfect easy, healthy, meal. Perfect for detoxing from all the holiday fun that recently occurred or even just for a weekday that you’re feeling the need for some greens.
Trust me… there are greens in there under all that good stuff!
