Fiesta Chicken Taco Salad

I got this recipe from the book, Recipes from the Big Blue Binder, by Marie Rayner(a wonderful chef and friend!) This recipe is a fabulous summer supper salad and also really easy to prepare!

2/3 cup French salad dressing
2/3 cup chunky salsa
1 tbsp. taco seasoning mix

9 cups chopped romaine lettuce
9 oz. grilled chicken, cut into strips
2 cups taco flavored tortilla chips(regular tortilla chips work too-I couldn't find taco flavored and this substitution tasted good too)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 medium tomatoes, cut into wedges
3 oz. sliced ripe olives

1/2 cup sour cream to serve
Taco flavored tortilla chips to garnish

Whisk the dressing ingredients together in a small bowl until blended. Set aside.

Mix all the salad ingredients together in a large bowl, tossing well to combine. Pour the dressing over and toss again to make sure all the ingredients are coated.

Divide the salad among 4-6 plates. Top each with a dollop of sour cream and add a few tortilla chips as a garnish. Serve immediately.

Just tried this recipe--so good! I used Doritos for the chips and the husband was happy :)
