ThrowBack Thursday ~ Chipotle Lime Chicken Salad

I love having a delish salad for dinner in the summer – but it has to be filling or my family will be unhappy 😉  Bevin made Chipolte Lime Chicken Salad last year – and it’s about time I brought it back to re-share!  YUM Enjoy ~ Heather

Chipotle Lime Chicken Salad


This is one of my favorite favorite go-to easy healthy recipes.  You can also omit the chicken and make it a vegetarian dish or a side.  It can be served warm or chilled.  It is great chilled on a hot summer evening.
