How to Make an Epic Southern Salad with Cilantro Lime Dressing

24934171994_c47cb22f9d_c

This is my absolute favorite salad I’ve made this year. I picked up all the ingredients from the local Whole Foods and chose organic wherever possible. When I do salads, I don’t measure out the ingredients. Instead, I eyeball it. It’s not too hard to find the mix that works best for you. Start small with the strong ingredients (onions, for example) and taste test and add more if you like.

Here’s our mix:
Mixed baby spinach & arugula
Chopped tomatoes
Chopped red peppers
Sliced red onions
1/2 an avocado, diced
A heaping handful of cilantro leaves
Shredded sharp white cheddar
Cubes of chicken breast, baked in oil and cilantro dressing (I used one chicken breast for the size of salad shown)
Cilantro lime dressing (made according to the recipe and heavy on the cilantro)
