Three straightforward steps are all that are required to assemble this salad dish. Just prepare, mix, and serve!

  1. Cook chicken breasts with seasoning (per the recipe below).
  2. In the same skillet, cook peppers, onions, and fajita seasoning until crisp and tender.
  3. To serve, divide the chopped romaine between the two bowls. Over the lettuce in each bowl, arrange one sliced chicken breast. On each salad, garnish with half the vegetable mixture.

Over the top, drizzle the lime vinaigrette dressing and toss to mix.

How much time will it last?

As long as it is covered in the refrigerator, this salad can keep for about 3 days when not dressed. With the dressing, it may last for around 2 days before becoming soggy.

If you believe you won’t finish it in one sitting, be careful not to overdress it! The recipe IS for an entrée! To keep salad crisp, keep it well covered in the refrigerator. To prevent it from becoming soggy if you prepare it ahead of time to serve later, wait to add the dressing.
