Southwestern Salad

Hey People! Here's another recipe. It's for a salad I made the other day. I really don't know what to call it- it kinda has a Southwestern or Tex-mex, or Mexican flair. I think you will really enjoy it. 

For the Chicken Marinade:
3 skinless chicken breasts
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp ancho chili powder
2 limes, juiced 

Mix all listed ingredients together and marinate chicken for at least one hour. 
Heat a skillet on high and sear your chicken. Lower the heat to medium and cook chicken until no pink remains. Let the chicken rest for 10 minutes and then slice on a diagonal. 

Avocado Marinade:
1 avocado, cubed
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp hot mexican chili powder
1/4 tsp coriander
1 lime, juiced

Combine all spices and season to taste with salt and pepper. Toss cubed avocado in marinade and let sit for for 15 minutes. 

Salad Ingredients:
Lettuce of your choice
Grape Tomatoes 
Red, yellow, orange bell peppers, thinly sliced
Red onion, thinly sliced
Jalapeno, thinly sliced, optional
Sliced olives, optional

Toss all salad ingredients together and top with as much sliced chicken and avocado as you want. Oh, don't forget to top it with my Southwestern Vinaigrette.
