    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    I strongly suggest to make the dressing up to 24 hours in advance to blend flavors, also you can grill the chicken a day in advance and refrigerate. If you are not a black bean lover then you can omit them and use corn niblets, adjust the dressing ingredients to taste :)

      This dressing is awesome, wow! Really creamy but not at all hot from the chipotle pepper. I took your advise and made this 24 hours in advance to allow the flavours to all come together. Thank you Kitten for another winner.

      The dressing is outstanding as is the salad but the dressing--OH WOW! I made the dressing using yogurt for the sour cream and omitting the anchovy (don't do those). The dressing was made this morning and I used a little on my roast beef sandwich at lunch. Very good! For the salad, I didn't have fajita seasoning mix so I used your Kittencal's Taco Seasoning Mix. After misting the chicken breasts with olive oil I rubbed the taco seasoning into the chicken and cooked them on the George Forman grill. This is a wonderful dinner salad.
