Tasty! My hubby grumbled a bit (he's not a fan of salads), but I really enjoyed this. :) I absolutely LOVE the idea of subbing French's fried onions for the tortilla strips found in the famous chain's salad! I scaled this in half to feed two HUNGRY adults, and to make this a little more authentic, I made a few changes. To start, I subbed Iceberg / Romaine lettuce (bagged mix), added some julienned jicama and a generous handful of shredded Monterey-Jack cheese and cut way back on the cilantro (maybe 3 T total). I seasoned my chicken with Montreal BBQ rub and had my hubby baste it with a little BBQ sauce while he grilled it. When it was time to eat, I plated my salad a little differently (again, to mimic CPK's salad). I tossed my lettuce, beans, corn, jicama, cheese and a little dressing together (just enough dressing to lightly coat everything), then plated it. I surrounded each salad with chopped tomato and avocado and garnished with fried onions and chicken. I finished it all of with a drizzle of BBQ sauce and leftover dressing. To change things up next time, I think I'll sub tortilla strips for the fried onions and just add a chopped green onion to my salad. All in all, this rocked my taste buds and totally satisfied my craving. Thanks for sharing your recipe, AMYEH! This was PHENOMENOL!!! :-)
