My sister’s mother-in-law who is a gourmet cook introduced me to this recipe. Whenever we have served it, it has always been a hit.

Santa Fe Chicken SaladSanta Fe Chicken Salad

4 breasts of chicken, cooked then sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 head romaine lettuce, chopped small
1 15-ounce can of black beans, drained and rinsed
1 ear of corn, cut off kernels (can use frozen or can corn)
1 tomato, chopped
1 avocado, diced
1/2 cup red onion, chopped fine
1/4 cup jack cheese
1/4 cup cheddar cheese
1/4 small jicama, diced
crushed tortilla chips
cucumbers (optional)
Buttermilk Salsa Dressing (see below)

Pound the chicken with a meat tenderizer. In a skillet, heat the oil. Add the chicken and sprinkle generously with lemon-pepper. Cook each side about 7 minutes or until done. Remove from pan to cool. Slice the chicken. Prepare all ingredients and toss the salad. Don’t addthe salad dressing until ready to serve.

Buttermilk Salsa Dressing

In a blender mix one envelope of ranch dressing with the required amount of mayonnaise and milk. Then add FRESH deli salsa to taste. Try and not get too much of the liquid.

Absolutely divine!
