Fajita Caesar Salad

I don’t know about where ya’ll live but it’s so hot here in Alabama you could fry an egg on the sidewalk…..it’s like 103 heat index!     So I’m not really interested in turning on the oven or doing much cooking.     This evening I wanted something light and tasty so I fixed this simple salad.

 

Here’s all you’ll need….

Tyson Grilled & Ready Fajita Chicken Strips

Romaine Salad

Ramen Noodles

Strawberries

Caesar Salad dressing

I normally don’t use the Ramen noodles and strawberries but I wanted something crunchy and sweet so I added the noodles and strawberries.     Several years ago when I was on Weight Watchers (for the first time !) I would toast the ramen noodles instead of eating potato chips.    Just spread the noodles on a cookie sheet, give them a squirt of I Can’t Believe It’s Butter, and broil them for just a minute or two, until they are slightly brown.   (I don’t use the flavor seasoning that come with the noodles when I’m toasting them).   They make a great snack when you’re in the mood for some crunch & munch!      I also added the strawberries since we had some that needed to be used.

This is such a quick and simple meal that I think I’ll be eating it a lot this summer.

Yum! Your salad looks so cool and refreshing. I always have Ramen noodles in the house as I love them. lol I even did a post on them titled "true confessions" but I've never tried broiling them. I'm going to try this for sure.
Thanks for the great recipe.
