This Chicken Taco Salad is loaded with grilled chicken, corn, tomatoes and green onion over a bed of romaine lettuce. Life-in-the-Lofthouse.comThis Chicken Taco Salad is my most favorite salad in the universe. It is packed with so many flavors and pretty healthy, if you ask me. Grilled chicken, corn, tomatoes and green onion to name a few of the goodies on this bed of greens.

One of the great things about this salad is the delicious dressing. It’s a mixture of light ranch dressing and salsa. It is divine! If you’re not a fan of light ranch, just use regular ranch and you’ll be good to go. I just like to use light ranch when I’m being a little more calorie conscious. 🙂

  1. This was awesome! My husband who doesn’t like salads too much had a huge helping. I used seasoned tortilla strips for a crunch on top. Definitely will make this again. I will probably double the dressing for some on the side. Delicious!!!
