|I'm obsessed with salads. I don't think I ever thought I would say that, but pregnancy is making me wild for them. I don't think any salad can compare to the Wildfire chopped salad and Portillo's chopped salad, but I can't buy one every day, right? |
It's definitely the dressing that makes the salad so good. But why don't salads taste as good when you make them at home? We tried to make our own chopped salad and I have to say that this one was pretty good!

• romaine lettuce
• 3-4 chicken breasts, grilled and cut into small pieces

Cut tortillas into small strips. Brush lightly with oil and salt. Grill in a pan or bake in the oven until crispy.
To create the chopped salad look, we use a chopper to cut the lettuce.
Pour dressing over vegetables and mix well.
