Easy Southwest Chopped Salad


This 5 minute salad is perfect when you have little to no time but you're craving something crisp and healthy. We love a little help in the kitchen and a good bagged salad does just that! Also for this salad: JTI Pro Tip - ditch the bagged salad dressing and use the one we suggest below. It's so good! Now throw it all together and move on with your busy day.


Serves 4ish
