Femme Phorm Kitchen: Salsa Salad with Chicken and Tangy Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette

2 min read

Ask anyone who knows me and they will tell you that when I am dieting for a show, the very first thing I want to eat after the show is a super loaded salad with all the fixings.  I’m talking croutons, cheese, crispy chicken, creamy dressing- the works!!  However, since this kind of salad likely has more calories than a Big Mac, I like to create interesting salads that I can eat every day and stay within my calorie budget.   Here is a super quick salad will tempt both your eyes and your palate with a colorful array of chopped veggies and deliciously tangy vinaigrette dressing!  This salad also packs a nutritional punch with a healthy dose of lean protein, fiber and hearty healthy fats.  Add a side of brown rice or a piece of Ezekiel toast and you have a complete meal!

Ingredients:

  • 1 avocado
  • 1 ripe tomato
  • ½ green pepper
  • ½ orange pepper
  • ½ red pepper
  • 2 green onions
  • ½ small red onion
  • 8 oz chicken breast (grilled)
  • ½ cup canned corn, drained (no added salt or sugar)
  • 1 romaine heart



Vinagrette Dressing:

  • 1 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 bunch of fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 4 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil



Directions:

  1. Chop the first 8 ingredients into bite sized cubes.
  2. Layer the chopped veggies and the corn over a bed of chopped romaine lettuce in a large bowl.
  3. Blend the vinegar, cilantro, lime juice, lime juice, honey, salt and oil in a small beverage blender (I like to use my ‘Magic Bullet’ for this).
  4. Add the dressing to the salad to your taste preference and enjoy!  (Tip:  you can use the leftover dressing to marinate fish or chicken before grilling)

Serve and enjoy!!

As you know, life does not always go according to plan.

Right now, with current events, we are relearning that fact of life first hand.

BUT, the good news is that while the situation is not ideal, we are in control of how we think about the situation as well as the actions we take to keep moving forward.

We can be frustrated and upset ... or we can accept that life is not going to be perfect, do the best we can, and move forward!

That's the option I am choosing and I hope you do too! [...]
