Chicken Fajita Salad

What do you do when you have an avocado that desperately needs to be eaten, one lonely chicken breast, and two hungry people?
You make salads!
For those of you looking to make a little food go a long way, salads are an excellent meal choice. Inexpensive vegetables, like green leaf lettuce, onions, and bell peppers, add bulk to an otherwise humble meal. The best part? The options are endless! As I have said before, you can eat a different salad every day and never get bored. Add fruit and nuts, experiment with vinegars…. You get the picture.
GF Guy loves this salad as much as I do. We both ended the evening with full bellies and happy hearts.
