This healthy, super-fast salad recipe swaps out romaine for kale, giving you more than 10 times the vitamin C. Easy flavor hacks like store-bought ranch and pickled jalapeños help make a creamy, tangy and spicy dressing you'll want to drizzle on everything from salad to sliced veggies and shredded poached chicken.

Took some tips from 2 previous reviewers and used fresh Jalapeno for the dressing also combined the mango onions and beans in a container added some fresh Cilantro to the mix and chilled it in the fridge for about an hour - perfect for my taste! I also used sweet potato tortilla chips. This salad is so filling and tasty. I may try it without the chicken next time. Read More

I loved it! Filling and so nutritious. I live by myself so I make this ahead of time for the week. I combine the beans onion and mango in one container to make it easier to store in the fridge. The chicken gets its own container. Read More

I lightly steamed the kale for a minute or two for easy chewing/digestion and the texture came out perfect for this recipe. I also used a regular de-seeded jalapeño as opposed to pickled for the dressing and that came out delicious as well. I crumbled tortilla chips on top. This was an easy way to introduce a new delicious recipe into our rotation! Read More
