Just in case you haven’t noticed, I’m kind of a fan of salads. Note the hint of sarcasm in my voice? Seriously, though, I usually eat some type of salad for lunch or dinner, pretty much everyday. While I enjoy a variety of different types of salads, a jazzed up chicken salad is my very favorite!
It’s a little more difficult to get the kiddos interested in salads, but I’m always up for a challenge. By adding their favorite Pace® Chunky Salsa and a host of other flavorful ingredients to this salad and serving it wrap-style. I left them begging for more. I love when that happens!! I enjoy mine with a large glass of thirst-quenching V8 +Energy®.
V8 +Energy® is natural energy from Green Tea and one serving gives you a combined serving of veggies and fruit. It’s also super tasty and so refreshing for summer!
Because life is crazy, I wanted to keep these wraps as simple and quick-to-make as possible. There’s enough stress in life, dinner should be easy, breezy. My chicken of choice was the already cooked Swanson® Premium Chicken. I love that this option is ready to use without any prep or mess – just pop the can and throw in the drained chicken. Plus, it’s low fat, heart healthy and REALLY tasty!
The dressing made with Pace® Chunky Salsa brings everything together and highlights that Southwest flavor in an amazing way. Pace® Salsa is made with handpicked veggies and kicks up the flavor of just about any recipe. From dips to salads, we love Pace® Salsa in just about everything, but maybe ice cream. 😜
I hope your family LOVES this yummy recipe as much as mine does! It’s:
While this Southwest Chicken Salad is awesome in a wrap, feel free to serve it as a dip with tortilla chips or crackers or even in lettuce cups for a lower carb option.
