Crispy spiced sweet potato fries, baked southwest chicken strips, creamy garlic avocado dipping sauce, and vibrant greens. Lunch, dinner, or even, breakfast! Paleo, whole30, and gluten free. The whole family is going to love this meal! Put it on the table… and there will be none left.
I can’t even. I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love this bowl. All my favorites. It makes me want to cry. Cry over food. Cry over how good food is. How good food makes me feel. Ahhh….
Okay, we were having a moment; I’m better now. But, seriously! Leftovers are illegal with this dish! I have never even seen them… and if there ever were any in the future, you can be sure that once my ears hear about it, there will be no more!
southwest bowl is going to change your world
This bowl goes down in Johnson history as that time my younger sister and I bonded over greens. Like, we made the whole recipe and ate it all ourselves. When this bowl was created, some kinda magic happened. It stopped both our worlds and we became completely engrossed in the four inches of greens, chicken, and fries in front of our faces!
The crispiest, most delicious spiced sweet potatoes, southwest chicken, addictive dipping sauce, and vibrant greens are all about to make your world a better place, today. 🙂
… And I’m about to share that all with you! I don’t know if it’s because, it’s pretty much all my favorite foods having a party in ONE BOWL. Or the fact that sweet potatoes paired with chicken, cilantro, and avocado makes my eyes turn into hearts. All I know is, that if I could eat one salad for the rest of my days- this would probably be it.
A few housekeeping notes about this bowl.
Pretty much EVERYTHING in this bowl can be adjusted for your personal dietary needs/tastebuds. Here are some of my favorite swap outs!
- Kale, spinach, lettuce, and pretty much anything green in place of cabbage.
- Yogurt for mayo.
- Basil, dill, or parsley for cilantro.
- Any other protein for chicken; steak, eggs, or fish to name a few.
- Regular potatoes for sweet potatoes (but only if you are crazy enough to love regulars more than beautiful orange sweet potatoes).
- Lime juice or vinegar for lemon juice.
- Any other kind of olives for kalamatas.
That is just how versatile and still amazing this salad can be!
