This Southwestern Chopped Chicken Salad is so easy to put together if you can use a can opener and a sharp knife. Just chop up everything and put in in a big bowl, then toss with the tasty dressing. The salad is perfect for the warm weather and was a hit with the family. My hubby and I loved it and kids loved it after they picked out the things they didn't like. Seriously, who doesn't like avocados? That's okay, the ones that didn't like them gave them to me. I guess that's still a win win.
2 cups diced or shredded chicken (cook your own or use a rotisserie chicken from the store)
1 bell pepper, diced (I used red)
1 can black beans, rinsed
1 can sweet yellow corn (or 1 cup frozen corn, thawed)
2 tomatoes, diced
4 green onions, sliced
1 head iceberg lettuce, chopped
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
2 ripe avocados, diced
1 cup crushed tortilla chips, optional
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2/3 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon ranch seasoning
1 tablespoon taco seasoning
In a large bowl, combine all salad ingredients together, excluding the tortilla chips. In a small bowl combine all dressing ingredients and mix together. Pour dressing over salad and stir to combine. Top with tortilla chips, if desired. Serve immediately.
