Cindy's Southwest Chicken Dinner Salad

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by CIndytc

This is a recipe I made up by taking a few things from a couple different recipes to fit into our own tastes. I used a marinade on the chicken that is half western dressing & half italian dressing that our butcher store here at home is wonderful and a pink color...then just grill them up and slice onto your salad. You can use any marinated chicken breasts that fit your families tastes.

I looked forward to this all day long and it was not a disappointment!! This salad was fantastic! I roasted my corn like suggested,skipped the bacon bits and used fat free cheese. I made the dressing using fat free ranch dressing. I let the dressing sit in the fridge for about 2 hours to let the flavors blend. I also marinated the breasts in fat free zesty Italian dressing for about 4 hours before I grilled them. I can't say enough about how good this salad was! All of the different flavors just came together so well. Thank you so much for posting this!! :)
