Chicken Fajita Salads [VIDEO]

This is hands down one of my go-to salads lately. The fajita seasoning that covers the chicken and covers the veggies has the perfect flavor, and a simple dressing of salsa {homemade or store-bought}, is the perfect healthy topping.

Cinco de Mayo is 8 days away. This is my excuse to get super festive (by now you’ll find I’m pretty much down to get festive for any occasion) with my food. I’m all about Mexican dinners, which you can see from my variations post here or through my occasional Instagram posts about it, here. They are generally one of those meals that is super simple to throw together, healthy, and packs a ton of flavor. Sign me up!
