Tex-mex Chicken Salad Perfect for Hot Summer Days

For a new twist on a chicken salad, try this Tex-Mex Chicken Salad.  With a refreshing combination of salad greens, veggies, and grilled chicken tossed with your own home-made lime vinaigrette, it is perfect for hot summer days.  But it is also a good choice for any time of the year.  For a little south-of-the-border feel, hang a pinata, lay some mariachis on the table, bring out your colorful place mats and salad plates. Serve the salad with baked tortilla chips rather than bread or crackers.  Put salsa and guacamole in colorful dishes to add to the scheme.  A little salsa music in the background would help to set the mood.  There you have it, a quick and simple patio meal.

BLACK BEAN CHICKEN SALAD WITH LIME VINAIGRETTE DRESSING

SALAD:

6 cups mixed salad greens

1 1/2 cups cubed grilled or sauteed chicken breast

1 can (15 oz) black beans, rinse well and drain

1 cup chopped fresh tomatoes

1 cup chopped green bell pepper

1/2 cup sliced, halved red onion

1/2 cup low-fat Mexican-blend shredded cheese

DRESSING:

1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro

1/4 cup finely chopped tomato

1 tbsp vinegar (I prefer cider vinegar)

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp lime juice

1/2 tsp lime zest

1 garlic clove, minced

dash of salt

1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

1/4 tsp chili powder

In a large salad bowl, combine the salad ingredients.  In a food processor or blender, combine the dressing ingredients.  Place lid on container and process until you have a smooth dressing.  Pour dressing over salad and toss to coat.

Makes 4 servings.  Each serving:  298 calories, 26 g carbs, 28 g protein

Note:  I adapted this recipe from one I saw in a Light & Tasty magazine a few years ago.

Enjoy!

Your at the Salad Bar, What do you put on your plate?

Answer closest to what I like gets 10 points!
Oh and sorry I'm waiting for my hair color to set it so I'm asking this question to help pass the time :)

I hate waiting for my hair color to set. 25 minutes of not being able to sit on anything and smelling awful.
Anyways.
Baby spinach, cucumbers, carrots, red & green peppers, grape tomatoes, sunflower seeds and red wine vinegar dressing. Oh, and prob a little sprinkling of shredded mozzarella.
