Chicken Fajita Salad

Just over two years ago, I blogged an Express Chicken Fajita Salad recipe that I’d…urm…nicked from the Slimming World magazine. 

 I was young, forgive me.

Whilst on holiday I was daydreaming about food (I do this a lot. Although not usually lying by the pool in baking sunshine) and thinking about making a salad based around a fajita. That previous recipe, with its rice, feels more like a burrito. I wanted a fajita salad, and I wanted something fresh and clean tasting and delicious. So that’s what I made.

You can add cheese to this, if you like. You could throw in some sliced chillis if you liked heat, or swop the sweetcorn for black beans, or have salsa/guacamole on the side. Basically, think of what you like in your fajitas and put it on your salad! This is just a base — play around with it however you like.

All the goodness of a fajita, but without the wrap. A nice lunch or starter

  6. Several heaped tablespoons of sweetcorn (basically, however much you want to add)
  7. 2 large limes
  1. Shred the lettuce and pile it on the plates
  2. Top with the sliced peppers and chicken. Dice the red onion and scatter over the plate with the sweetcorn
