Salads get a bad rap. From bland and boring to flavorless and tired, salads are too often the spotlight of a #saddesklunch. We’re here to change that! This flavor-packed salad will add a much-needed zing to your lunch (or dinner!) that will have you dreaming of leftovers.
We love this recipe because it’s loaded with protein (23g per serving!) thanks to pre-cooked rotisserie chicken. The lime juice adds the perfect kick of brightness to each bite and the cabbage provides a crunch that can’t be beat.
