Layered Chicken Taco Salad

Layered Chicken Taco Salad

Serves 4 (easily halved)

This summer it’s been easy to love salad because quite frankly it’s been too hot to eat anything else.

There’s so much to love about this snazzy salsa salad, not least because you can make it in less than 15 minutes! It’s packed full of veggies and full of flavour and it’s as colourful as it is tasty. It’s also super healthy because there’s no oily dressing, just some super fresh and super zingy salsa, which is dead easy to make (or buy) yourself.)

Feel free to finish things off with some sour cream, or if you like it hot, top the whole shebang off with some value added jalapeno peppers. Everyone will go mad for this Mexican salad, I promise!
