SOUTHWEST FIESTA SALAD

Fall has me in the mood to bake all the things. I baked three new recipes this past weekend (coming soon!). I sent most of them off this morning with Bob for his co-workers but I definitely did my fair share of taste tasting. You know, for the sake of the blog.

When I go to Applebee’s, I like to order their Fiesta Chicken Chopped Salad so I decided to use Eat Smart’s Southwest Vegetable Salad Kit to make a copycat version at home. I added a few ingredients to the ready-to-go kit, whipped up a spicy jalapeno dressing, and dinner was ready. The kit comes with a zesty chipotle dressing if you want to make things even easier.
