Chili Lime Chicken Salad

I love a good salad but for whatever reason I have trouble assembling a decent salad on my own. I always draw a blank on what to put in my salad.

You see I grew up eating Iceberg Lettuce salads with carrots, cucumber and radishes… I hate radishes. So in my mind salads are pretty boring, but in recent years I’ve discovered that salads can be delicious, maybe even exciting. Salads also don’t generally require too much work. A little chopping and a little mixing and you’ve got a quick meal.

On Sunday I threw together a quick salad after church a Chili Lime Chicken Salad. On the way home from church I needed to stop into Trader Joe’s, while I was there I picked up some precooked, pre-seasoned Chili Lime Chicken breasts which made this even easier.
