Salads are the perfect summertime food to me and one style of salad that I like to buy at various restaurants is the southwest salad. I wanted to create a version that I could easily whip up in my kitchen and came up with this Southwest Salad with Cilantro Lime Dressing. We loved how it turned out and my kids are already asking me to make it again! I know we will be making this all summer long because it’s so quick and easy to make.
All the salad ingredients can be cooked in the microwave. I started this salad by cooking up some Tyson Grilled and Ready Chicken and sliced it into thin strips. Tyson Grilled and Ready Chicken is the easiest and tastiest grilled chicken that doesn’t require a grill! They are also made with white meat and are 100% all natural.
The next ingredient I used to make this salad is the Bird’s Eye Protein Southwest Style blend. The Bird’s Eye Protein sides can be used as a full meal because they have added protein or they can be used as a side for any course. I love them because they are a quick and easy meal solution that’s quickly cooked up in the microwave. The Bird’s Eye Southwest Style Blend was perfect for this salad and went well with the Cilantro Lime Dressing.
Southwest Salad with Cilantro Lime Dressing
- 1 packet dry ranch dressing mix with ingredients from packet to make dressing
- 1 bunch cilantro with bottom stems cut off up to 2 inches of leaves
- juice of 2 limes
- zest of 1 lime
- Place all ingredients into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Chill for 4 house and serve chilled. Goes great with salad or wraps.
This salad is so fresh and tasty! I love all the southwest flavors and the added kick of the Cilantro Lime Dressing.
What is your favorite summer style salad? There are many varieties of the Bird’s Eye Protein Blends to choose from to make a different style salad like California Style, Asian Style and Italian Style.
