Southwest Chicken Salad

with Spicy Sriracha Dressing

oriental chicken salad

Lunch is the one meal of the day where I’m often at a loss as to what to eat. Soup comes to my rescue on many days, with salad being another favorite. Since salad dressings are both pricey, take up valuable space in the fridge, and are generally made with an oil that I find unacceptable (soy, canola, etc) I like to dress my salad with a splash of this and a dash of that. Sriracha is one of those condiments that goes on everything, including salad. It takes my chicken salad from boring to zesty in a matter of seconds. You’ll love my simple Southwest Chicken Salad with Spicy Sriracha Dressing!

  1. I will def try this recipe, but with the black beans and avocado, it sounds more Southwest Chicken salad than oriental.
