Delish! I made a few changes though: I used less mayo and more buttermilk, I used store bought tortilla strips, and I used fake chicken to make it vegetarian. I like to use Jack Daniels BBQ sauce to pour over the chicken. Also, adding avocado is a MUST! The dressing is even better the next day!
Absolutely, sinfully, delicious. Oh, I didn't mention that caution should be used. It is also addictive. Wonder why California Pizza Kitchen doesn't have a restaurant in Southwest Denver, Southwest Plaza? Bear Valley? Pinehurst area? Please?
This is one of my all time favorites! I crave it sprinkled with lime juice in the summer!
Great salad! This did take a lot of time, marinating/grilling chicken, making the dressing, & chopping the veggies. The dressing was even better the next day. I used crushed tortilla chips instead of frying my own.
Love this salad! It is a regular at my house. When I am an a hurry, I just make Hidden Valley Ranch from the packet and but pre-made tortilla strips (near the croutons in the grocery store.) Never use bottle ranch, it ruins the salad. When making to use as a side salad, I just leave out the chicken and it is still fantastic!
All the flavors are so delicious together in this! Made at home this was healthier and even better than the restaurant version. We made this low fat by omitting the cheese and using baked chips and low fat dairy products in the dressing. You could easily halve the dressing and still have plenty, it makes about 2 cups. Though it is so good on its own, having leftover dressing is not a bad thing. We also omitted the salt, used more beans and fresh corn. The crunch with the spice and smokiness is great in this entree salad, it definitely lives up to its name.
This salad is fantastic! It is my favortie salad ever and I know you will love it also
this is a great recipe..however you can pick up the pre-made dressing from cpk for like $4 and add it to your salad.
I made this for lunch today and it was delicious! Made just as posted except I didn't use corn tortillas for the strips because I had bought the wrongs ones... I will be making this again! Thanks for posting! Made for Photo tag.
I made this for lunch today and my co-worker and I loved it! I'm not one to spend a whole lot of time putting a salad together so I used Tyson Grilled Chicken Strips (tossed with the barbecue sauce) and Santa Fe Style Tortilla Strips. I took the salad ingredients to work in 2 separate containers along with separate containers of the chicken, dressing and tortilla strips. We each put our salad together and added a little barbecue sauce to the ranch dressing. This salad will definitely be added to my lunch rotation. Yummy! Thanks for sharing, Sharon. :)
