This salad is fantastic. The bold flavors meld together perfectly for a very satisfying dish. I think it would be perfect for a summer potluck or a side dish for any number of things, like grilled chicken, steak or even shrimp. My favorite way to eat this salad though? Make a batch and eat it stuffed inside a whole wheat pita for lunch all week long.
A filling summer salad with grilled chicken, bacon, cashews, sliced almonds, pumpkin and sunflower seeds. It is dressed with a chipotle lime vinaigrette.
A wrap filled with sliced chicken, dried cranberries, dried cherries, toasted chopped pecans and chopped sun-dried tomatoes (all tossed together in a Greek yogurt dressing before piling it into the wrap!). Healthy and delicious!
I get a similar barbacoa salad every time I go to Cafe Rio. This is such an easy summer salad! I buy premade cilantro dressing (I like the El Torrito brand)and use pre-cooked carnitas. A healthy summer dinner in ten minutes!
