Salads are one of my favorite meals for busy school nights. Kaylee even loves taking leftover salad to school for lunch the next day. That girl loves her veggies!

What really makes a good salad is a good salad dressing, like the chipotle ranch dressing I use on when we have southwest chicken salad for dinner. This meal makes a great weeknight dinner or weekend lunch. Even the kids enjoy it!

The chipotle ranch dressing has a bit of spice to it. If you want it spicier, just double up on the chipotle peppers. You could also double up on the sour cream and omit the whipping cream if you want more of a dip recipe. Either way, it’s yummy with chicken!
