After sharing with you my recipe for Ranch Dressing, here is a fantastic idea on how to put it to good use: Deconstructed Chicken Taco Salad. Yes, you read that right. It’s like having tacos but in a salad form. And who doesn’t like tacos?? It’s got shredded chicken (I used my Roast Brined Chicken for this), avocado, cilantro, refreshing vegetables and a creamy dressing too. Plus, you have some crushed taco shells (you can even make your own) as a sort of “crostini”, to add some crunch and to make this salad a complete meal. I love to have it for lunch as it is light, yet satisfying! ¡Disfrútenlo!
