Summer Salad

Hi! Long time, no post! We just got back in town from vacation last night. We had a great trip to see my family, then met up with Jeremy's family to go to Sea World with them. So fun! While we were on our trip, my Grandma broke her hip, though. The last part of our trip was spent at the hospital with her. She did great during surgery and is now on the long road to recovery. She is such a trooper. I'm so thankful we were in town when it happened and were able to be with her. Please pray for her if she comes to mind!

We've been eating a lot of fried food while on the road, so tonight we wanted something fresh and healthy and NOT fried. I saw Pioneer Woman's new Chicken Taco Salad recipe and knew it would be perfect for dinner tonight. It turned out great and was very yummy! I will definitely be making this many more times!

Here's a link to the recipe. I was going to re-write it here, but then you'd miss all of the beautiful pictures on her site. Go check it out and drool over the deliciousness!

I followed her recipe exactly, except for these few exceptions.

-I seasoned my chicken with chili powder, seasoned salt, and a little bit of onion powder. It's what I had on hand.
-I used canned corn instead of fresh. I just drained it, then browned it in the same skillet I used for the chicken.
-I majorly cut back on the cilantro. We are not huge fans of cilantro. I think next time I'll actually omit it completely.
-We omitted the avocado. Both of my boys scrunch their noses up at avocados, so I didn't bother.
-I assembled our salads on our individual plates instead of all together since I knew we couldn't eat it all at once and would have leftoveers. Soggy chips in the leftovers=gross. ;)

Try this salad! You won't be sorry!
