Chicken Fajita Salad Recipe

Fajita is a popular Mexican dish that consists of grilled meat usually served as a taco on a flour or corn tortilla. As is true with most Tex-Mex dishes, fajita too scores high on spices, peppers, and strong flavours. The fajita salad on the other hand is a slightly healthier version of the dish wherein the meats and veggies are served sans the tortilla salad, as a salad (duh uh).

Making this salad is super easy, and all you require is your desired choice of grilled meat cut into strips. Add to that some delicious spices like ground cumin and oregano along with some avocado, veggies, fiery spice inducing peppers and chilies, and voila! You’ve got yourself a delicious and healthy chicken fajita salad. Follow the recipe below!
