Mexican Salad with Chicken and Creamy Lime-Avocado Dressing

I can very clearly remember the salad we had almost every other night while I was growing up.  It was iceberg lettuce with thick diced tomatoes, shredded carrots from a bag, some sort of shredded mixed cheddar, and then a thick ranch or blue cheese dressing.  This salad was SO common that I developed a hatred for all boring, crunchy, generic salads {as well as ranch and blue cheese dressing} and I probably went at least 10 years without ever making a salad myself.  But I’ve since grown out of my “salad is rabbit food” phase and have found several salads that are undeniably delicious and so fun to make at home!

This particular Mexican Salad with Chicken is my absolute favorite of all time.  It’s extremely filling, has a lot of flavors {probably because it has over a dozen ingredients}, and the dressing is just UNBELIEVABLY amazing.  We make a ton of the dressing so that I can toss it on practically everything we eat for days after the salad.  It makes a delicious dip for veggies and crackers.  And I even love it served simply on toast and covered with sunny side up eggs!  You’ll see that the salad has a lot of ingredients and several steps to it, but the only cooking you’re really doing is to the chicken.  Everything is so easy and I promise, you won’t regret the effort you put into this meal.
