Southwestern Chopped Chicken Salad

Ingredients:
  1. 6 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  2. 6 cups cubed cooked chicken1
  3. 1 and 1/2 cups corn
  4. 1 and 1/2 cups black beans
  5. 2 tomatoes, diced
  6. 1 avocado, diced
  7. 1/2 red onion, diced
  8. 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  9. 1 cup crushed tortilla chips
  10. handful chopped cilantro

Dressing
  1. 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt (I use nonfat)
  2. 3 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  3. 2 teaspoons honey
  4. 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  5. 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  6. juice of 1 lime
  7. 1/2 jalapeƱo, finely diced
  8. 2 heaping teaspoons taco seasoning (I use mild)
  9. salt, to taste and if needed

Directions:
  • Add all of the salad ingredients to a large bowl. (If you're not serving it right away, add the tortilla chips on last right before serving. They'll stay crunchy that way.)
  • Whisk the dressing ingredients together, except for the salt. Taste, then add salt to your preference.
