Tex-Mex Chicken Salad

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 20 min.


6 servings

Nancy tops packaged greens with the warm chicken and onion combo, then tosses in tomato, red pepper and shredded cheese to create this colorful salad. An easy dressing of zippy salsa and bottled vinaigrette adds the final flavorful touch.


  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, julienned
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 2 cups Tex-Mex Chicken Starter
  • 1 package (10 ounces) ready-to-serve salad greens
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1-1/2 cups salsa
  • 1/3 cup prepared vinaigrette salad dressing


  1. In a large skillet, saute red pepper in oil until crisp-tender. Add chicken starter; heat through.
  2. In a salad bowl, combine the greens, tomato, onion and cheese. Top with chicken mixture. In a small bowl, combine salsa and vinaigrette until blended. Serve with salad.

    What is Tex-Mex chicken chicken starter? I live in CA and haven't heard of it. Is there anything you could substitute for it, like maybe chicken taco seasoning mix?
