Chicken Fajita Salad

 

After a week of camping and eating kind of unhealthy, I went to the grocery store and picked up some healthy dinners for the coming days. I am so excited to get back into the gym and eating healthy ( never thought I would say that, haha). So I came up with a Chicken Fajita Salad with an Avocado Lime Vinaigrette.
