Chicken Fajita Salad

Posted:

Winter doldrums got you down? Wake up your tastebuds and menus with a crisp salad. This is the perfect one for winter since it's topped with warm fajita fixin's to offset the typical chill of a salad entrée. Vegetables also add vibrant, sunny colors to dreary winter days, and the mix of flavors here make this one a tasty treat while helping to meet veggie needs for the day. Because we are using smaller pieces of chicken and veggies, the cook time on this one makes it super simple after a busy day, too.
