Why I Love This Recipe

Add crunch to this salad by toasting cheese-coated flour tortilla strips. The salad is made easy with purchased grilled chicken strips.


Ingredients You'll Need

2 8-inch flour tortillas
• 3/4 cup viniagrette salad dressing
• 2 teaspoons taco seasoning mix
• 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
• 2 6-oz. packages pre-grilled chicken breast strips
• 1 head iceberg lettuce, shredded
• 1/2 cup each finely diced red and yellow sweet pepper
• 1/2 cup julienned carrots
• 1 cup thinly sliced onion


Directions

Cut tortillas into 1/4-inch strips. Cut strips into 1/2-inch pieces. In small bowl, combine vinaigrette and taco seasoning. Toss tortilla pieces with 2 tablespoons of the dressing. 2. Toss tortilla strips with cheese in plastic bag to coat. Place tortilla pieces on baking sheet in preheated 300 degree F. oven and bake 5 minutes. 3. Combine remaining ingredients in large salad bowl. Toss with remaining dressing. Add tortilla strips and toss lightly. Serve with crusty rolls, if desired.


Notes:


This salad is hearty enough for a main course and great for warm summer evenings. For crisper tortilla pieces, leave in oven 30 to 40 minutes after oven is turned off.
