I fixed this for my Book Club today and all the ladies requested the recipe. It is easy, fresh and a delicious blend of flavors. Definitely a keeper.

This recipe has become a family staple and an easy (and well loved) fix for lunch with girl friends. My variation: I use iceberg lettuce, frozen corn, colorful tortilla strips found in the produce department at my grocery store. I also use the remaining taco seasoning as a dry rub on the chicken and grill it. …And, looking back over the recipe–I realized I error and add 1 TBL of each spice for the dressing. Oops! Anyhow, great recipe! Thank you for sharing!

This is really good. Great dinner for a hot day. I added a chopped chipotle pepper in adobo sauce to the dressing for a touch of spice and flavor. We’ll definitely be using this recipe again.

This is very good. I decided at the last minute to leave out the chicken because Iwas serving it with enchiladas. I followed the rest as written. I used frozen sweet corn and about 10 times the amount of cilantro, exaggerating just a bit. We loved it! I wanted to go ahead and put the avocados in so I sliced them and tossed with lime juice. No browning at all. A keeper for sure!!

We love this salad. It’s a great one for entertaining or to bring to friends after a baby when they’re sick of casseroles. So summery and light!
