Slash salt but not flavor with this recipe

Share This Story



If you’re a sucker for cilantro — and if you want to kick excess salt to the curb — then I’ve got a recipe for you. Zippy Southwest Chicken Fajita Salad is a great lunch or dinner option, especially when you have leftover chicken in your refrigerator. And at approximately $4.12/serving, it’s a less expensive way to serve yourself and your family than an outing at most restaurants.

Like nine out of 10 Americans, you’re probably getting too much salt in your diet. This recipe packs in the flavor with chili powder, jalepeño, herbs, and citrus juice, but leaves added salt out of the party.
