This is a salad I wanted to recreate at home after a recent trip to visit friends and family in Dallas. Inspired by a salad I enjoyed at a restaurant there, I thought what so many of us think when we over pay for something because it happens to sound delicious: "This is so good. I bet you I can MAKE this!" So that's what I did and I will share how:
romaine lettuce (1 head shredded)
chicken breast, seasoned and cooked
dressing (recipe previously posted)
1 clove garlic
1/2 cup cilantro
juice of 1 large orange
juice of 2 limes
1/2 cup olive oil
Prepare chicken as desired, slice or shred. I seasoned with a little bit of Adobo, a little paprika, and some pepper, then broiled on low until cooked throughout.
Chop fruit, avocado and tomatoes (technically a fruit, I know) to portions of your choosing.
Tear lettuce leaves and add to salad bowl or plate and top with fruit, tomatoes and avocado. Add chicken. Serve with cilantro lime dressing, recipe here.
