"This is a highly seasoned salad that is a nice change from the typical 'taco' version. Even my kids and their friends love it!"

1 (15 ounce) can

grated Parmesan cheese
I just loved this, the dressing in particular. I thought it might be a little heavy on the cilantro but it wasn't for me, although it was a little much for Hubs. I made the dressing following the recipe exactly and would do so again. For the salad itself, I would have appreciated the addition of corn which I had intended to do and forgot. I used shredded Cheddar cheese rather than the Parmesan because I felt it was a better match for this salad. Instead of crushed or whole tortilla chips I used tortilla strips specifically made for soups and salads. This salad has all the Southwest flavors I enjoy, right in one bowl. It's colorful, crunchy, festive, refreshing, nutritious and delicious.
Really looked forward to this, yet just so-so.
I loved this but I changed a couple things. I cut the chicken into chunks and then cooked it in the salad dressing mix. Then I used 1/2 BBQ sauce and 1/2 Ranch dressing mixed together for the dressing. I fed my parents and my husband and they all loved it!
This is a great salad, I made a couple of changes/amendments - I could not buy any fresh limes so I used Real Lime juice in the bottle, worked well but I think that fresh limes would have made it even better. I only used half the black beans. The biggest change that I did was that I made double the amount of salad dressing and I used half of it to marinate the chicken tenderloins for approx. 1 hour. This really made them so tasty and I believe added to the overall flavor of the salad. I will definitely make this again.
Wow this was excellent!! I added more cilantro, because i love lots! I added some olives and some more lettuce, because i was making for more people. I don't eat chips so I baked some whole grain tortillas with some seasonings till cruchy and put those on it. Very good if you are on the south beach diet!!
I just made this recipe and it was SO good. I used a Mexican cheese blend instead of parmesan cheese. I also marinated the chicken in the dressing and baked it, which made it very tasty. (I recommend making more dressing too.)
Delicious!!! Will definately be making this again. It's a very light and refreshing salad. I didn't have any cilantro so that's the only thing I left out. I also added a little garlic salt to the dressing. I seasoned a couple of thin chicken breasts with garlic salt, chile powder and cumin. I baked it for 20 min. at 350. I cut the chicken into slices and it was sooo good. The flavor went perfect with the salad. I left out the tortilla chips and cheese to make it healthier. My husband kept raving about it too. It's a keeper! Thank you for the great recipe!!!
We all love love love this receipe. You can serve it so many ways...over tortilla chips, as a wrap in bread as a sandwich, taco salad filling.........thanx so much!
