Mexican Chicken Salad with Tortilla Chips

Mexican Chicken Salad with Tortilla Chips
Low Carb tortilla chips add crunch to this colorful, nutritious salad. If you like spicy food, add a little cayenne pepper to the dressing. The highly seasoned lime vinaigrette dressing is also terrific over grilled fish.

1 boneless chicken breast (about 12 ounces)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
Garcia Lo's Tortilla Chips *
1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 red bell pepper,coarsely chopped
1/2 cup Eden canned black beans *, drained and rinsed
1/2 small red onion, finely chopped
8 cups (about 5 ounces) mixed greens
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 Haas avocado
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

1/3 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon grated lime peel
1 clove garlic, pushed through a press
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon salt


1. For Salad:
Prepare a medium grill or preheat broiler. Brush grill with oil. Season chicken breast with salt and pepper. Grill 15 minutes, or until cooked through, turning once halfway through cooking time. (Chicken may be made up to 1 day ahead. Cool before wrapping and refrigerating.) Let chicken cool to room temperature, then thinly slice on the diagonal.
2. In a large bowl toss red pepper, black beans, onion, greens, cilantro until evenly mixed.
3. For dressing: Whisk olive oil, lime juice, grated lime peel, garlic, chili powder, cumin and salt.
4. To assemble salad: Toss greens mixture with dressing until evenly coated. Cut avocado into thin slices and toss with lime juice. For each portion, place one-quarter of the greens mixture on each of four plates. Top with one-quarter of the chicken slices, one-quarter of the chopped tomato and one-quarter of the avocado slices. If desired, serve with lime wedges. 5. Top with slightly crumbled tortilla chips and serve with more whole chips.
