Modern Taco Salad with kale, chicken, feta, and chick peas

In my quest to eat more salads (see my guide to a week’s worth of salads here), I’ve been getting really creative with my meals.  Last week, I made what may be my best salad yet.  I’m not really sure what to call it… it’s a cross between a taco salad and a buffalo chicken salad… but then it has kale.  And chick peas.  So I’m going to call it a “Modern Taco Salad.”  It’s healthy and delicious and sure to satisfy all your cravings.

Let me know what you think!

What’s in it?

  • kale (chopped into bite sized pieces and then massaged with sea salt)
  • green onion, diced
  • fresh cilantro
  • Spanish olives
  • chicken (I used rotisserie white meat)
  • feta cheese
  • chick peas
  • tortilla strips
  • ranch (I used the bottled stuff, but fresh and homemade is always better!)
  • Sriracha

Mix kale greens with diced green onions and cilantro, to taste.  Top with olives, chicken, feta, and chick peas.  Drizzle with ranch and Sriracha and top with a few tortilla strips for crunch!  Yum!

  1. Oh, man, does this look great! I just told my husband we need to eat salads like crazy because the garden is in full swing. Looking forward to trying this one, and also your jalapeno feta nachos I just spotted 🙂
