Chicken Taco Salad

This recipe is for P2, or if you are on the Mix It Up Experiment, it can be for Stage 1 or 3 (add sour cream) … it’s a variation of the recipe for Taco Salad.

Salads are one of my mainstays while on P2 … they are so portable … don’t need any heating up, and you can make it ahead of time (night before) and throw it in a cooler when you are ready to go.

I have gotten into the habit lately of chopping a lot of salad veggies and putting them in small mason jars … that way I have the fixings for almost any salad available for days at a time.  It is sort of amazing how long chopped veggies stay fresh in mason jars.  Give it a shot and see … saves time and helps you stay on track!
