InstructionsChopped Mexican Chicken Salad | Shockingly Delicious.com [3]

  1. Add chicken, lettuce, corn, black beans and onion to a large salad bowl. Toss gently to combine. Portion into 4 wide flat bowls, or onto large plates.
  2. Sprinkle each salad with avocado and tomato (these are more fragile and are damaged by tossing). Sprinkle with cheese. Drizzle each salad with about 1 tablespoon dressing (more if you like).
