I’m completely in love with every aspect of this Zesty Chipotle Chopped Chicken Salad.

It’s full of bright colors, loaded with healthy veggies, packed with flavor, and made in 15 minutes {for an easy weeknight meal}!

The dressing is a simple sour cream based dressing that is infused with lime and chipotle chile peppers. If you can’t handle the heat, just reduce the amount of peppers you add.

My favorite part about a chopped salad is how all the ingredients are quickly chopped and tossed together. Look at how bright and beautiful this salad is!

With or without the salad, this dressing is incredible. I have been pouring this stuff on wraps, dipping chicken in it, and licking the spoon each time.

It puts the “Zesty” in this Zesty Chipotle Chopped Chicken Salad.

Pour the dressing all over the salad, then gently toss.

You can add the chicken to the salad before you add the dressing or after. Either way works great.

I have eaten this salad 5 times in the last week. 😉
