Rotisserie Chicken Chopped Salad
with adobo honey vinaigrette

Active: 20 min Total: 20 min

Chopped rotisserie chicken makes an easy salad filling, and if you're doing the vegetarian version, extra beans and tomatoes give this a southwest feel. Dressed in our adobo honey vinaigrette, any salad filling is going to be jazzed up with so much flavor. You'll definitely want to put this vinaigrette on everything, but remember to save some for tomorrow night's dinner!

Shocked at how the dressing took it from a pretty good salad to a fantastic one! Almost forgot to save some dressing for tomorrow's meal. Would definitely make again.

This was delicious! Will definitely become a salad staple in our home! Easy to offer a deconstructed version to our toddlers as well. Added some corn to the dish.
