      This tastes surprisingly like the Southwest Grilled Chicken Salad we get at our local Dairy Queen. I sure was glad to find this recipe because we love this salad. To make it even easier, I used restaurant style Tostitoes brand tortilla chips. I added some fresh diced tomatoes to the salad. I absolutely love the ranch dressing mixed with salsa. Thanks for posting this recipe. It's one we will make often.
