Monterrey Chicken Salad

This is an inspired recipe from our favorite Mexican restaurant.  Many people think there aren’t any healthy options at a Mexican restaurant but if you are creative with your substitutions, you can make it work.  That being said, the best option is ALWAYS making it at home with ingredients YOU control.

1 small head organic romaine lettuce
1-2 handfuls organic baby spinach
1 small organic grilled chicken breast
Chopped tomato
Chopped avocado

Dressing = salsa (homemade or sugar-less store bought – check labels!)

Optional:
Organic cheddar cheese (preferably Beyond Organic Cheddar)
Black olives

Put lettuce and spinach in a bowl or on a plate and layer the rest of the ingredients.
