READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by startnover

We have a fun little restaurant that is only open for lunch. They specialize in different varieties of salads. This is one of my favorites! I use Awesome Fajita Marinade for the chicken breasts.

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!
