First – the Chicken Veracruz Salad – it’s loaded!! Mixed greens, roma tomatoes, red onion, chili-lime chicken, crumbled bacon, fresh cut corn, crispy jalapeños, avocados and cilantro tossed with Jalapeno Ranch dressing.
It’s got a kick – especially with the jalapenos. My buddy and I shared the salad and he really liked this one – but I was able to get half of it. 🙂 I liked it too – it was crispy and refreshing and spicy all at the same time. Like a taco salad but better! And it’s only 510 calories!!!!
Nate knew he wasn’t going to dig on this – something about bleu cheese so it was pretty much all mine – which I didn’t realize or I wouldn’t have made sure to get my half on the Veracruz! I used to not like bleu cheese – and I still have a level where it gets too stinky and funky – but I now APPRECIATE it. It’s got a good kind of funk now – at least the mellow stuff does. I liked this salad and think the apples and the bleu were a fantastic combo!
So there you have it – two new salads that could win you $10,000 to travel the world. And I have something else for you! A contest to win a $20 gift card so you can try them on me! Tell me which one you want to try and you’ll be entered to win!
