Ensalada Ignacio (Special Request)
This choice is a mix of Romaine lettuce, juicy tomatoes, creamy avocado, onions, grilled chicken breast, and sliced cotija cheese (request less cotija cheese, 1 oz). To keep this a dietitian pick skip the dressing or use it sparingly. The dressing is not included in the analysis posted on HealthyDiningFinder.com and will increase calories and fat.
Chicken Mango Jicama Salad (Special Request)
Crisp, cool and delicious! This salad includes mixed greens, Romaine, jicama, bell pepper, and mango dressing and is topped with grilled chicken strips. Be sure to request dressing on the side (not included in analysis). Each tablespoon will add 60 calories, 6 g fat, and 65 mg sodium.
