A Fresh, Crispy Dinner Salad
Dining out can be one of the most fun aspects of vacation, but it can get expensive and exhausting. Often, by the third or fourth night, we're itching to stay in and cook something easy. When in an unfamiliar kitchen, though, we don't want to experiment. Instead, we rely on tried-and-true crowd pleasers, like this refreshed version of the ubiquitous taco salad, with lean chicken and chopped vegetables piled high on a crispy tortilla. For a shortcut, omit frying the tortillas and serve the chicken salad over large handfuls of good-quality corn tortilla chips.
