Mexican Chicken Salad Recipe

Mexican Chicken Salad Recipe

Happy Cinco De Mayo everyone! I hope you’re having a great day celebrating with tacos, sombreros and maybe some margaritas 😉

I started my Cinco De Mayo bright and early grilling  corn on my balcony at 6 AM (check out my Twitter for that pic!) while preparing for my appearance on San Diego 6 News.

I joined my friends at San Diego 6 again this morning to prepare a Gluten Free Cinco De Mayo feast complete with Blackberry Jalapeño Margaritas, Avocado Tacos, Deconstructed Mexican Street Corn and Buffalo Chili Lime Shrimp Lettuce Wraps from my cookbook Buffalo Style.

  • 2 tbsp fresh cilantro
