Salad Topping Ideas
When it comes to topping this Chicken Taco Salad, the possibilities are endless! You can truly customize the salad this way. If you don’t like certain toppings, leave them off! Or, use what you have on hand. Personally, I love the combination of cheese, avocado, black beans, Fritos and corn on mine. Do whatever makes your tastebuds sing! Salad topping ideas:
Serve this salad up for a scrumptious weeknight meal, a back porch fiesta or for a week of meal prep. Store the salad, toppings and dressing separately so that the lettuce doesn’t get soggy and you have a delicious salad ready to go at any time!
