Southwesterly Salad

If you buy a cooked rotisserie chicken or cooked chicken breasts, then this is a no heat in the summer salad. Even if you bake the chicken breasts like I do, it’s a low mess recipe and perfect for tiny kitchens. When I bake the chicken breasts, I dust them with a little salt, pepper, and smoked paprika.

For this four person version, you’ll need:
Dressing:
Small plain Greek yogurt (usually around 5 ounces)
Juice of one lime
1/4 cup or so of olive oil
2 tablespoons of minced cilantro
1/2 teaspoon each of cumin and garlic powder
Salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste

Salad:
Around 2/3 a cup of cubed chicken per person (1 small breast each)
2 cups roughly cut romaine lettuce per person
Around a 1/4 of an avocado per person
Sliced cucumbers, tomatoes, red pepper, and red onion

As always everything can vary. The chicken could be turkey, or maybe smoked turkey, maybe scallions instead of red onions…corn kernels…a hit of Ancho chili peppers or Siracha in the dressing…
