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 

Directions:
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
Salt
Pepper

Directions:
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
Cucumber
Grape Tomatoes 
Red, yellow, orange bell peppers, thinly sliced
Red onion, thinly sliced
Jalapeno, thinly sliced, optional
Sliced olives, optional

Directions:
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.
