How to Make Refreshing Cilantro Chicken Salad for Two

  1. In a jar with a tight-fitting lid (a canning jar works best), combine the oil, lime juice, cilantro, cumin, salt and red pepper flakes. Do a dance and shake the jar well.
  2. In a bowl, combine the lettuce, chicken and tomatoes. Drizzle with dressing and toss to coat. You can add extra cilantro if you wish on top. Refrigerate any excess dressing. I have also used some of this to marinate the chicken in a separate bowl or container prior to cooking. Turned out very well.
