Tex-Mex Chicken Salad With Greek Yogurt & Cilantro Dressing

Taco Tuesday can’t really be a thing when you’re trying your hardest to eat healthy. Of course, that’s not to say there aren’t any healthy taco options out there, but they often “claim” to be healthy, yet come with some sort of tangy mayonnaise-based dressing and fried meat that, while delicious, knocks the fat and calorie counts right back up to where you don’t want … Continue reading Tex-Mex Chicken Salad With Greek Yogurt & Cilantro Dressing
