Serves 6

5 Minutes

15 Minutes

  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • ¼ teaspoon creole seasoning
  • 6 ounces bakery prepared cornbread, cut into ½ inch cubes
  • 1 package (16 ounce) Del Real Foods Shredded Chicken
  • ¼ cup Caesar dressing
  • 1/3 cup Del Real Salsa Molcajete Verde
  • 12 ounces salad greens (this is about 16 cups)
  • ¼ cup roasted salted pepitas

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Stir the cumin, garlic powder, chili powder and creole seasoning together in a small bowl. Place the cornbread cubes on a foil lined cookie sheet, spray generously with non-stick cooking spray and sprinkle with the seasoning mix. Place in the oven and bake for about 15 minutes, or until cubes are browned and crisp. While the croutons are toasting, prepare the chicken according to package directions. Drain the chicken and set aside to cool. In a small bowl, stir together the Caesar dressing and Salsa Verde. In a large serving bowl, toss together the salad greens, chicken and the salad dressing. Top with croutons, sprinkle with pepitas and serve immediately.
