Southwestern Chicken Caesar Salad With Chipotle Dressing

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

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.
