Prepare Chili Lime Chicken according to recipe directions (click “1 recipe chili lime chicken” in the ingredients to be taken to the recipe). While the chicken is resting, you can prep the vegetables and make the dressing.

Add Salad Dressing ingredients to a medium bowl or jar. Whisk to combine and refrigerate until ready to use. You may need more or less honey depending on how sweet your fruit is and personal “tangy” preference.

Add chopped romaine lettuce and baby spinach to a large salad bowl followed by all remaining salad ingredients. Top with sliced or chopped chicken.

You can either drizzle with dressing and toss OR if expecting leftovers, drizzle dressing over individual servings. Serve immediately.
