Author Notes:

If you are searching for a hearty and healthy salad, you must try this In this recipe the chicken is seasoned with chili powder, cumin and garlic then cooked in fresh lime juice, it is so good. For the greens, I used baby kale, avocado, green onions, corn and black beans. Then I finished the salad with the most flavourful light avocado lime dressing which is made without added oil.
