Fajita Salad

During the summer I don't want to turn the oven on if I don't have to, so I am always looking for easy, cool dinners. Last night I made a fajita salad that was so good and so filling-and surprisingly healthy. I was surprised how filling it was! My husband and I decided that it didn't need dressing-lime juice was all it needed! You will be amazed at how easy and yummy this is!
*Chicken Fajita Salad*
adapted from 101 things to do with a salad
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed
1 envelope fajita seasoning
