Mexican Chicken Salad, With a Texas Twist

This Mexican Chicken Salad, with a Texas twist is one of my favorite low carb salad combinations. I often eat more salads in the summer because I find them to be cool and refreshing. Nevertheless, a Mexican Chicken Salad can also go along great with a warm cup of low carb soup or warm low carb pannini sandwich! Therefore, you can make this easy Mexican Chicken Salad year-round.

Since salads are pretty straight forward, I will address the “Texas Twist”. Instead of using a more traditional lime and sea salt dressing, I go straight for a bottle of fat free ranch dressing! You can still add the lime to get that natural tart & sour taste. And, if you wanted to take it a step further, add some fresh cooked crumbled bacon!

For the chicken, I typically use some sort of leftover chicken since I am often on-the-go. Nevertheless, you can definitely cook your own chicken breast and season it with a Mexican Fiesta Seasoning to really enhance the flavor of this salad.

So, it really is easy peasy!
