Mexican Chicken Salad

South of the Border Instagram

I-95 Northbound on Easter Sunday was not a Funday! Alas, I am grateful that we made it home safely. The corny South of the Border sight always brings a smile, or smirk to my face.  So in honor of our neighbors south of the (US) border, I am posting a Mexican Chicken Entree Salad …mmmm; bring on the chips!

For Dressing:
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
3 Tbs olive oil
3 Tbs honey
2 t granulated sugar
2 t cumin
1 t chili powder
1/4 t salt
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

In a small bowl combine all above ingredients.
Mix well with wire whisk.
Set aside.
