Layered Chicken Santa Fe Salad


We love salads for supper, and anything Southwestern goes over great at my house. Layered Santa Fe Salad is a breeze. Purchase a rotisserie chicken from the grocery, or use leftover grilled chicken. Serve with salsa or, for kids, ranch dressing. In under 25 minutes, you will have a colorful dinner on the table that is so healthy, high in protein and low in fat.
