Easy Southwestern Chicken Salad

Delicious healthy salad idea for lunch or dinner!


  • Romaine lettuce
  • Tomatoes
  • Corn
  • Black beans
  • Cheddar, Monterrey Jack or Colby  cheese, shredded

  • Cooked diced chicken breast

  • Hard-boiled eggs

  • Dressing of choice

  • Options: Chopped cilantro, sliced avocado, chopped red onion, diced jalapeno,
    diced green pepper, crumbled tortilla chips, corn chips or tortilla strips


  • Wash, drain and chop your romaine lettuce and tomatoes.

  • Drain and rinse the black beans, and drain the corn if using canned corn.

  • Toss everything, and add any optional ingredients that you like, and you’re ready for the dressing.

  • There are many zesty dressings available that would work well with this salad
    (like a Catalina or a vinaigrette based one), but personally I like to mix barbeque sauce with ranch dressing as a topping.
