Sometimes you discover a meal that you could literally eat every day. For me, that meal is any type of chicken salad with Italian dressing. I mean, let’s just be honest, no matter what I add to it, it’s amazing. And while most days I find myself reaching into the refrigerator for a variety of veggies, nuts and cheeses to make my meal complete, when I’m really intentional and want to make the best salad ever I go with my tried and true Chicken, Black Bean and Corn Salad drizzled with Wish-Bone® Italian Dressing.
So what is it about this salad that makes it so amazing that is stands out in a sea of salads? Well, there’s not really just one answer. Because it’s a combination of flavors that comes together so perfectly that it never gets old. It never gets boring. And it definitely never loses the ability to pack a punch when it comes to the flavor department. But for me, the best part of this amazing Chicken, Black Bean and Corn Salad is how completely simple it is to make.
It stands to reason that since I love this salad so much, I keep my essential ingredients on hand. So each week when I head to Walmart, I make sure to stock up on TYSON® GRILLED & READY® CHICKEN and WISH-BONE® ITALIAN DRESSING. Available in the frozen foods section and salad dressing aisle, the minute I have this combination in my cart, I know that my salads for the week won’t disappoint.
By always ensuring that I have these two essential ingredients are on hand, creating my flavorful Chicken, Black Bean and Corn Salad is as simple as pulling together my ingredients in the perfect way! I always start by cooking my Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken to perfection in a skillet.
I adore that with bags of Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken, I can make as much or as little chicken as I want. It’s so simple and convenient that it’s perfect for when I’m enjoying lunch solo and just the right size when the whole family is eating. And since it’s an easy base for a delicious and healthy protein filled meal, I always know that staring with Tyson® means I can’t go wrong.
Once my Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken is cooked to perfection, it only takes a few quick minutes to put together my salad. Now, I always keep cooked corn on hand because I love to add it to all my favorite dishes but even if I’m running low, heating up a pack of frozen corn is super simple. To start assembling my Chicken, Black Bean and Corn salad, I add my greens to the bottom of my bowl. And here’s a little secret…I love to use herb mix salad to ensure that every bite is super flavorful.
Once my greens are in my bowl, all I have to do is add in the other ingredients one at a time, keeping them all divided until it’s time to combine them for the perfect bite. First, a half a cup of my corn goes in.
I follow that with a half of cup of rinsed black beans.
Next, it’s time for my perfectly cooked Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken.
And last, I add just enough Feta cheese to up the flavor profile and make my salad truly amazing!
With all the main ingredients of my Chicken, Black Bean and Corn Salad in my bowl, all that’s left to do is add the most important part…the Wish-Bone® Italian Dressing.
