Mexicanish Chicken Salad

I'm in a food rut again!

But I busted out of it a little bit tonight thanks to Trader Joe's and Sunset :).

I decided to make a Mexicanish Chicken Salad, which I have to admit didn't sound that exciting at first, but then I decided to use these two things and they definitely made for a more exciting Chicken salad!

Kat and I made this Chicken Rub back at the Sunset Weekend in June and I have forgotten to use it until tonight. It was really good! Thank you Sunset!



I was doing some weekly shopping at Trader Joe's today and was in the market for some corn. I had a normal can of corn in my cart, until I saw this! It added a greet sweet, savory and spicy kick to the salad! Thank you TJ's!



With the flavors of the chicken + Sunset chicken rub and the TJ's salsa, some spinach, arugula, radicchio, avocado, olives, tomato, black beans, cheddar cheese and slices of tortilla that I brushed with some EVOO and crisped up in the oven...it ended up being like a mini mexican fiesta on a plate!

WOW!! Ever think of opening up your own little eatery?! Or at least consulting on the menu items for one!!

and i think to myself...what a wonderful world said...

Sadina, that is maybe one of the best compliments I have ever received! I have always dreamt of owning my own coffee shop, but consulting on menu items might be a way to be involved without the hassle of actually running a place! Thanks for the idea!
