Healthy Chicken Fajita Salad

February Week 4 – Whip Up A Packed With Vitamins Salad!

Senorita Ferren back at ya with another M-Azing recipe!

Now I’m pretty sure I didn’t exactly follow the instructions of the challenge this week (Mel don’t kill me ;) But I did find a great recipe off of the LiveStrong Website and since it’s a pretty healthy looking website I figured it should count at least a little :)

 

 I rate this recipe 3 stars out of 5!

(And bonus this time my picture looks better than the one on the blog!)

 Reasons: This was a delicious salad and I really liked it. I like salads that have lots of different ingredients to keep things interesting and this salad kept it interesting.

My 18 month old LOVED it! He had 2.5 bowls of it! I mean what kind of 18 month old likes salad so this one has to be good, right!?

 Notes: Be careful, I don’t know if our fajita marinade was just super spicy or if that is how all fajita marinades are. It packed a punch!

I also sneaked in some freshly shredded carrot! Even healthier!

The mushrooms add an interesting texture and taste, not bad, just not expected in a mexican salad.

The contributor says that you can add rice or a whole wheat tortilla to make this into a great recovery meal after a workout! Bonus!
