Whole Food Mexican Fiesta Chicken Salad Recipe

There is plenty of fiesta flavor and crunch to this salad that the chicken is certainly optional. I found a clean dressing at a WinCo store that recently had a grand opening in my area. It’s definitely not the store of choice for health seekers but I was able to find a few hidden treasures, one of which was this salsa or salad dressing. So I came home an put this salad together and it was fabuloso!
