Chicken Fajita Salad

I’m not sure this even counts as a recipe since I’m pretty sure someone with a brain slug* could make this. It’s not very creative at all, but it’s something easy to make when all you feel like doing is digging in to a pint of Chubby Hubby (Ok, I’ve never had Chubby Hubby. My favorite is Phish Food and I haven’t had it in YEARS). Anyway, back away from the carbs/sugar. Eat this and feel satisfied, my friends.

You will need:

Grilled/broiled/baked chicken breast, chopped. Probably 1.5 – 2 cups.

1 avocado, diced

2 handfuls of diced tomato (or halved grape tomatoes)

1 handful diced pepper (bell pepper or mini sweet peppers)

1 handful chopped olives

4-6 cups hearts of Romaine, chopped (and stems removed if you prefer)

Salsa, for dressing – read the ingredients to make sure it doesn’t have added sugar or anything disgusting added to it.

1/2 of an onion, thinly sliced & 1 cup sliced mushrooms sauteed in olive oil until mushrooms are soft and onions are caramelized (optional)

It’s go time: Throw everything but the salsa and optional onions/mushrooms in a big bowl. Mix it all around. Eat all the stuff that fell out of the bowl because the one you selected isn’t large enough. Dish a serving of salad on to a plate. Top with salsa and then onions/mushrooms. OMG, you just made chicken fajita salad.


*Did you catch that Futurama reference? If so, I heart you.
