Chicken Fajita Salad

A chicken fajita salad that is a healthy lunch or dinner.  

This is a spicy salad and can be the healthier alternative to a Fajita…well, no carb wrap..just the chicken and veggies.  It looks colourful which I love as food should look fabulous as well as being yummy.  You could serve this with a side of sour cream and/or avocado salsa if you wish too.  The husband happily munched this as it came.   Easy to make, easier to eat…what more could a Diva ask for?  Or the husband of a Diva… Chicken Fajita Salad

I cooked this on the stove but it would be just as easy to cook the chicken on a bbq or under a grill.
